Hello, I'm Polly. I was born and raised in Wiltshire but I now live in South London with my husband, a fellow actor and writer, and my gorgeous Shihchon, Fergal. 

I trained at The Birmingham School of Acting and since graduating I've gone on to perform in a variety of productions from classical theatre to new writing, from thriller to farce!

I've performed in the West End, embarked on International, No.1, UK National and regional tours as well as working closer to home. I'm proud to have worked with new writers and I've been involved in the origins of several new comedy shows on the London Fringe.

Breaking news!

 

Polly has just finished a wonderful run of Alan Aykbourn's Joking Apart at the Brighton Open Air Theatre where she played Louise Emmerson.

Before that spent a lot of time working at the beautiful
Harrogate Theatre. First with a brand new 'Rep Season' where she enjoyed playing Gretchen in Boeing Boeing and Sybil in Private Lives. Then, playing the Fairy and scottish cook Morag in their wonderful Pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk.

In the recent past she had an absolutely fabulous time playing the role of 
Butcher in the family musical
The Hunting of the Snark at the Vaudeville Theatre in the West End followed by a UK and Australian tour!
The show, which Polly has been a part of since 2015, has now been to the heart of theatre-land and beyond!

There are some links below to some lovely reviews, and a video of the official trailer:
