Hannah is an actor, writer and producer. Hannah moved to London from Manchester when she was 18 to begin her foundation course in acting and never left (although she is still a proud northerner at heart). She quickly discovered as well as acting a love for writing through making work with and for friends, as well as herself. This has led to a desire to share her work with a wider audience. A requisite for agency and choice in her career has landed Hannah in the producing world, turns out spreadsheets are fun.
She recently was invited back to News Revue for their Christmas run at the Canal Theatre Cafe, and is currently preparing for encore nominated new writing play "Three" performing in Brighton. Alongside this, Hannah is producing Fishing 4 Chips' 5* comedy Burning Down The Horse as it returns to the Edinburgh Fringe Pleasance 2024. This year Hannah's man focus is a play close to home: Mumsplaining. Mumsplaining explores grief through the lense of ADHD and autism.
