Marina surprised us both. She was a character from a completely bonkers play neither of us were familiar with, but once we started work - she just shone. Everything that Shakespeare's Soap-addled plot throws in her path she deals with, with strength of character, conviction and a self-determination of her own destiny. Of course the play is named after her father and isn't really about her at all - but she is steadfast, sure and absolutely the person we should all aspire to emulate.

What is also wonderful is how much of a feminist she is. How she survives everything using her skills and even through her grief she finds life and love.

Lydia's performance is also lovely, it's brimming with warmth and glows with inner strength. This one makes me cry, but it also makes me want to seize control of who I am and what I make and hug the world.

For we are all more than any simple destiny. xxx
