No stranger to drama, Sophie Brooks has been acting for as long as she can remember. In addition to drama and dance training, she has practical experience of stage management, lighting, sound and costume. She has worked with professional and amateur theatre companies in a range of theatrical events and productions that include performing with Bath’s Natural Theatre Company, experimental street theatre, musicals, Shakespeare, Brecht and a number of plays by contemporary playwrights. Sophie was also responsible for producing ‘The Woman Who Cooked Her Husband’ in 2002 which was performed by The Rondo Theatre Company and which brought the Playing Up team together for the first time.
A qualified English and Drama teacher and now Director of English at a Bristol school, Sophie is very interested in the role of theatre in education and has frequently organised events to develop pupils’ understanding and appreciation of issues relevant to texts studied and the world around them.
"Sophie Brooks, as Flora, drives the plot admirably with enough one liners to fill a stand-up comedy evening."
