Kate Sketchley trained at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland after obtaining a BSc in Psychology at McGill University. She is well versed in classical, contemporary and devised work, recently participating in the development and performance of Shame: A Double Bill, a dance theatre piece, and the ongoing development of Mechanical’s Macbeth, by Tilly Lunken, as part of the Criterion Writer’s Programme. Her most recent performance was as Caliban in The Tempest, with Controlled Chaos Theatre. In addition to acting, Kate is a writer and is currently developing two pieces of her own work.

Character Portraits: Snout and Bottom!

SnoutMug1

Snout – Tinker, Prop Maker, Player.

Snout loves Theatre. It has revolutionised how she perceives herself and the world and as such her zeal makes her into a bit of a theatre bore. However it has also meant her talent and graft has transformed her performance. Not so, her patience which is sorely tried with the others not taking it as seriously as she does.

She is cast in a variety of roles and for the Criterion Theatre is playing Lady Macbeth and Witch One.

Snout is played by Francesca Burgoyne.

BottomMug1

Bottom – Weaver, Player, Director.

Bottom has been entirely swept up in the play and his character. He sees himself and his destiny in the role of Macbeth and this show is the chance of a lifetime to proclaim himself the Greatest of Actors. This is a big responsibility and he is determined that the play should succeed in the way he envisions – whatever the personal cost to his friends.

He is playing only Macbeth.

Bottom is played by Jackson Pentland.

A extract of Mechanicals’ Macbeth is being performed as part of the Criterion New Writing Showcase at the Criterion Theatre from 2pm, Monday 20th November.

 

 

 

Character Portraits: Quince and Snug!

QuinceMug1

Quince – Carpenter, Director, Player.

Quince is romantic about the theatre and the process of making a play – but as this play and process is rapidly falling down around him, he’s learning the hard way the deeper graft of theatre. And friendship!

He plays a variety of roles most importantly Duncan and Macduff and for the Criterion Showcase – Hecate.

Quince is played by Owen Clark.

SnugMug1

Snug – Joiner, Set Builder, Player.

Snug is a worker and proud of it. Whilst she enjoys theatre and playing, her greatest joy lies in the craft of a build and having it all come together in time. If only her friends would take everything as seriously as she does, they might have a chance of one day presenting a show that doesn’t look as if it’s been thrown together overnight!

She is playing many roles, this includes Banquo for the Criterion Theatre showcase.

Snug is played by Kate Sketchley.
