Alice was born and bred in South East London. She was delighted, therefore, to star in Kate Tempest’s electric three-hander, ‘Wasted’ set in Lewisham, on the very streets she grew up in. Her career began at Shakespeare’s Globe playing a comically stroppy young Queen Victoria and she has since returned there for Michael Longhurst’s critically acclaimed ‘Tis Pity She’s a Whore’ in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse. She loves classical work and playing Hermia in Jonathan Kent’s ‘Fairy Queen’ at BAM New York remains a huge personal highlight. Away from the classics, Alice has performed a huge variety of characters on stage, screen and radio, in everything from Sam Shepherd to Noel Coward. She has worked with amazing creatives like Lucy Bailey, Jessica Swale, and recently Sara Pascoe, on her fresh and irreverent adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. Alice loves new writing and is incredibly passionate about the projects she has done with Paines Plough, Theatre 503 and the National Theatre Studio. She was particularly proud of her work on Brad Birch’s alarming new play ‘The Brink’ at the Orange Tree. For the Nabokov Company, Alice received rave reviews in another South London collaboration, starring as hapless beautician Cheryl, in a series of comic plays by Leo Richardson, this led to taking the character forward into the SitCom pilot ‘Beautality’, developed by BBC Comedy and Tiger Aspect. Further original screenwriting had Alice starring in the one-woman drama ‘How to Disappear Completely’. Most recently she was seen around the country as Miss Verity in the arena tour of Grandpa’s Great Escape.
