Patron - Louise Jameson

Theatre has always been my first and deepest love. Fringe theatre, in particular, works on many levels for me. As someone who has always been interested in new writing, the fringe seems to be one of the very few places truly encouraging it at the moment. It is a place to nurture new talent - there's no learning curve quite like it! And I mean for everyone, on and off stage - writers, stage managers, sound engineers, lighting people, designers and more. It keeps the drama school momentum going and teaches our newcomers some business sense. It gives us old hands a chance to strut our stuff in a way that is often overlooked in the main stream of things. It allows audiences to see world class performances at an affordable price. LONG LIVE THE FRINGE and all who support it - see you at the next 'happening'!
Biography
Louise is probably best known as Rosa di Marco in Eastenders. She has done six other series for the BBC including Tom Brown's School Days, Dr. Who, Omega Factor, Bergerac, Rides, and her personal favourite, Tenko, not to mention guest appearances in Casualty, Wycliffe, The Bill and some classy 'one offs' such as Cider with Rosie and The Game. Series for other companies includes Stick with Me Kid (Disney), The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole (YTV) and Mollie (Sky).
Her first love however is the theatre and very shortly after finishing her RADA training, where she won the Shakespeare Award for Best Classical Performance, she joined the RSC for three years and played Stratford, London and America in numerous plays including Romeo and Juliet, Richard II, Love's Labour's Lost and The Taming of the Shrew. Non-Shakespearean roles included Molly in The Marquis of Keith (with Sir Ian McKellan), Sylvia Plath in Three Women, Kate in Passion Play (Best New Play) and Nadia Polikarpovna in Gorky's Barbarians. More recently she has worked with the Royal National Theatre as The Woman in Death of a Salesman. Away from the 'Royals' other favourite theatre includes Rosalind in As You Like It (Regent's Park Open Air Theatre), Helena in A Midsummer Night's Dream (Old Vic), Miriam Gotchalk in Mephisto and Beatrice in Much Ado About Nothing (both for Oxford Theatre Company), Roxanne in Sticky Fingers (a musical for the King's Head), Moll in Moll Flanders (also a musical, Yorkshire Playhouse) and Mollie in Sleeping Nightie (Royal Court Upstairs).
Three years ago she started tlc productions ltd., with a view to performing/producing/directing new writing/compilations and to take a sideways look at the classics to which end she produced and directed Wotcha Will, a compilation of the canon dipping into 17 of the plays and premiered Sex Wars with David Warwick and (brilliant guitarist) Simon James. Also Louise performs Love Letters with Colin Baker (next performance week at The Gatehouse, Highgate, in late August 2007) and most excitingly has premiered her one woman show at Hackney Empire called Face Value by Helen Goldwyn. This show has 'legs' as they say. Not only a tour next February but another London outing, also at The Gatehouse in early September where she teams up with Pete Searles (Sex with Pete Searles) for an hilarious evening of mid-life crisis. See you there?
Louise has also recorded numerous Radio 4 afternoon plays, and some monologue work for Radio 3. She lives in Kent with her two sons Harry and Tom and believes them to be by far the best things she's ever produced.
