I'm running the London Marathon 2017 for Masterclass at the Theatre Royal Haymarket. 

This will be a huge challenge for me and I wouldn't just run 26.2 miles for any old charity. 

I'm concerned about access and opportunities for young people who want a career in the theatre. There are many glass ceilings to smash and the theatre profession has a problemm with inclusivity and access at all levels. Masterclass do vital work in helping young people aged 16 - 30 start to smash glass ceilings. 

In 2013 I won the inaugural Mastclass 'Pitch Your Play' competition. This helped me to advance my playwriting career. I really want to give something back and ensure that young people who are more marginalised thank I am have the chance to pursue a career in the theatre. 

I would love your support in ensuring that the work Masterclass do for young theatremakers can continue.
