"We are interested in taking the audience into a world, to which they can relate, yet it feels new to them. We want them to see the deeper screen of their own lives. The tempo of our everyday existence is so hectic, that we are likely to overlook some of the essential things that drive our behaviour and our actions. Clara has also taught acting at Guildford Conservatoire, East 15 Acting School, Rose Bruford College of Speech & Drama. She has also taught Vocal Techniques and Music Theatre at Middlesex University, Brunel University, Buckinghamshire New University and the Stratford Circus Theatre.

Our most recent production, On the Borderline, is an exciting combination of live theatre, music, and video.

The production toured the South East of England. Its concluding performances were at the Bloomsbury Theatre in the West End.


The Evening Standard wrote:

"On the Borderline is a captivating production, which blends live theatre

and video. Beautifully directed and designed, it is a visually enticing

ensemble piece. Natalie Jacobs and Daniel Tyler-Smith give moving

performances as Courtney and the 'angel boy' Jaz." - S. Toppland

On the Borderline is set on the boundary between Bognor Regis, a small and run-down seaside town with high unemployment and a high level of deprivation and poverty, and its neighbouring village, Middleton-on-Sea, which has a lot of wealthy people, as well as a few millionaires. In Middleton-on-Sea, this old school upper class mix lives complacently in large houses with high walls and beautiful gardens. The play is set during the August Bank Holiday weekend in 2007. The plot unravels at break-neck momentum in 48 hours. Two strangers, Anne and Jaz, suddenly appear at the charity party, organized by millionaire Derek Mullins, who trades with insurances. From the dialogues between Anne and Jaz, one can guess that they work as investigative journalists, although they embody and evoke the revelation of some dark secrets that unexpectedly surface as the plot unravels. In the mayhem of the disintegrating party, Jaz conjures up the long-forgotten memory of Derek's attempt to murder him, and Anne reveals the features of a real historical personality, who lived and was executed in the 16th Century - Anne Askew, tortured and killed by the hounds of Henry the 8th. The play combines text and movement, complex lighting and set with visually enticing slides and effects.
