Hello! Tell us about yourself?
I am born and bred in London. I have been acting gor over 20 years I graduated from Drama Centre of London just down the road from Camden in Chalk Farm in 1998. I wrote the show after having survived stage 3 testicular cancer.
How did you come up with the name of your show that your taking to the Camden fringe?
I named the show Club Chemo as I saw all people that have been inflicted with cancer and treated with chemo as being in a club. Cancer survivors or patients I felt had a un spoken connection.
