Claire Machin is an actress who has been on my little radar for quite some time, she’s a versatile performer with an incredible singing voice and I think that her latest role as Cora in The Girls suits her down to the ground.

Welcome to Break A Leg’s first vlog. It’s an exciting time to be able to move forward and consider a different way of featuring our interviewees.

We are swiftly approaching theatre festival season – Brighton Fringe kicked off on 5 May and it won’t be long before the biggest theatre festival in the world, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, rolls around once more.
