Becky is a freelance set and costume designer, but was lucky enough to have designed regularly at the Exeter Northcott over the past twelve years, including professional productions of 'Bouncers' and 'A Passionate Woman', and 'Hamlet' in Rougemont Gardens.
Becky trained at Goldsmiths' College, University of London with a BA Honours degree in English and Drama followed by the postgraduate Theatre Design course at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School in 1990.
She has also completed a Masters in Fine Art, and is a qualified Play Worker.
Becky has designed over seventy productions across her career, many of them youth theatre shows, including the World Première of 'Korczak' in Plymouth and Poland, 'Brother Jacques', 'The Threepenny Opera', 'Oh, What A Lovely War!', 'Sweeney Todd' and 'The Hired Man' at The Drum, Plymouth; 'Macbeth', 'Custer's Last Stand', 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner', 'Blood Wedding' and 'Into the Woods' at Salisbury Playhouse; new writing and youth theatre shows at the Theatre Royal Bath; 'The Polychronicon', a millennium community play at the Chester Gateway Theatre, and touring productions of 'The Weir'and 'Grimms' Tales' for the Nuffield Theatre in Southampton.
She designed the costumes for the 2009 panto, 'Mother Goose' and the Dame's costumes for eight previous Northcott pantomimes, and the sets for 'Cinderella' and 'Aladdin', which were designed to also be used at The Hall for Cornwall.
Having worked extensively with the Northcott Young Company and the Northcott Community Company since they began, Becky designed set and costumes for 'Cider with Rosie' in Rougemont Gardens, 'The Curse of the Werewolf' (Rougemont Gardens and the Minnack Theatre), 'Fiddler on the Roof' on the mainstage, and costumes for 'Days of Hope' and 'Matthew Miller', plus the first nine NYC Easter shows - 'Goodnight Mr Tom', 'The Boyfriend', 'Godspell', 'Around the World in Eighty Days', 'Oh What a Lovely War!', 'Tin Pan Ali', 'Oliver!', 'The Wizard of Oz' and 'The Wind in the Willows'. Becky also designed 'James and the Giant Peach' in 2010, the last in-house show to have been produced at the Northcott.
Last Christmas, Becky designed the Dame's costumes for the first ever professional pantomime at the Corn Exchange in Exeter. She has worked as an artist/facilitator on a Prince's Trust project at Plymouth Theatre Royal, and on Holocaust Deep Learning days at secondary schools across Devon. She is currently designing a new show, 'Circus Britannica' by Shaun McCarthy, at the Bike Shed Theatre.
