Meet the Cast – Louise Mai Newberry (Melody in #Clareplay)

Louise Mai Newberry is an actress with a versatile CV to say the least! (You can view her show reel here)

She’s worked with organisations as well known as the RSC, Bristol Old Vic and Leicester Haymarket as well as making numerous TV appearances. She voices Flo the kitten on C Beebies Puppy Days and her alter ego – Precious Jade, the UK’s only half Chinese half east end pyrrhic agony aunt is a regular on the cabaret circuit and prolific on twitter.

Louise s love of English literature and new writing made her a natural for Tony Ramsay`s fresh look at the life of John Clare. Here she talks about one of the characters she plays – Melody, John Clare, Precious Jade and seeing Eastern Angles as a school child.

The long life and great good fortune of John Clare tours across East Anglia and runs until May 18th. Booking details here and a tour map is here.
