Biography

Hailing from Leven in Fife, Rachael started performing from a young age at her local youth theatre.

At 18, she moved to Edinburgh and studied at Telford College (PASS). After graduating she worked as an actor and drama facilitator, then continued her studies at New College Lanarkshire. She obtained first-class honours in Acting.

After moving to Glasgow, Rachael continued to develop her work as an actor. In 2018, she was offered the opportunity to participate in 'The Network Ensemble', working with SDTN and Caitlin Skinner. This would allow her to create a new piece of work, develop her theatre-making skills, and to develop her practice as a theatre maker, writer and actor.

 

Her ambition is to create her own theatre, and she is passionate about making work with and for young audiences.

How the Award Helped

Rachael's Award enabled her to attend 'The Network Ensemble 2018'. This allowed her to develop her theatre skills and to have her first fringe experience as a performer.
