Her controversial show Islands, opened at The Bush in 2015 and was then invited to be part of the 2015 British Council Showcase in Edinburgh.

Writer & Performer
A furious, funny, filthy solo show about tax avoidance and the few who have it all.
A funny, inspiring solo performance about home, underdogs, Midlands spirit and everything we miss.
An obscene, ink-black comedy about tax havens, greed and the few who have it all.
An epic fiercely playful tale of love, loneliness and the need to be free.
An eccentric, acutely myopic French woman's tale of love in WW2.
Writer & Performer
An episode based on Caroline's last trip with her Grandmother to Paris.
