Besides working on new scripts at AWL, Joan Blackham’s last theatre role was for Kali Theatre in Naylah Ahmed’s play Ready Or Not at The Arcola and on tour, for which she was nominated for an Offie Best Female in a Play 2017; she also played a retired war correspondent in Blown Apart, which recently won the Kenneth Branagh New Short Play Prize at the Windsor Fringe Festival.
TV work in the last couple of years includes delivering a tragic phone call in Dr Who; hitting Nicholas Lyndhurst over the head in New Tricks; playing a broad minded WI Chair in Doctors; a disgruntled patient in Take Five and a flirtatious receptionist in the Moran Sisters’ C4 sitcom Raised by Wolves.
Films include starring in an Ukrainian/Russian feature The Battle of Sevastopol, playing Eleanor Roosevelt, and playing another American, Mrs. Fitzgerald, in the Czech film Masaryk.
