Hi Sorry I have not posted for ages. Just come back from Skopje in Macedonia. I was invited to dance by Skopje Trisomia 21 for World Downs Syndrome Day. Full houses and lovely warm people. They made us very very welcome. Here is a picture of me showing my muscles in the dressing room.
Somebody on twitter forwarded this article. I love it.
Hope you like it.
It was a wonderful experience working with NG Ping the director, Lee Matinson writer and Melanie Hill, James Atherton and Kevin Wathen now it is over I am going to miss them. I love the theatre and Manchester is cool. Chinese food yum. Got some lovely reviews which my sister will put up for me and here is a link to an article in The Guardian by Saba Salmon http://www.theguardian.com/social-care-network/2014/oct/14/sarah-gordy-downs-syndrome-changing-perceptions
Can’t quite believe it’s here already. Really looking forward to seeing what audiences think of this new play. Crocodiles is at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester from Oct 1st to 18th. Evening shows at 7:30pm with matinees on Saturdays. Book tickets now
Great to have visit from beautiful Rosie and family who came to Manchester where I’m rehearsing for Crocodiles – a new play at the Royal Exchange. Rosie’s dad, Tom, writes the award winning blog The Future’s Rosie. Highly recommend checking it out and also joining the Facebook page – the posts of Rosie’s smile for the weekend are a joy to see. We’re big fans!
Its happened, I am going to play a woman ‘Matilda’ and it is nothing to do with disability. ’Crocodiles’ written by Lee Mattinson and directed by Ping Ng Choon at The Manchester Royal Exchange Studio Theatre. My agent is really excited because it is such a good play and it will get attention. I am really happy. Only 90 seats though. A friend said I dont put up enough photos so here is one. It is not ‘Matilda’ though, I will look very different then.

Sorry this is late. I am rubbish with my website. Hope you see this episode. Heidi Thomas also wrote Upstairs Downstairs and she wrote this episode with me in mind. The story is very good and I am really proud to be in it. It also introduces Colin Young a sensitive young actor. Here is a behind the scenes photo I cant find the official one. Here is a link to a UK national newspaper The Mirror (cut and past link please) I cant make it live, sorry http://www.mirror.co.uk/tv/tv-news/call-midwifes-most-controversial-storyline-3127269
