MEET THE TEAM
Kirsty Osmon graduated from Arts Ed with a first class honours in acting. Her first professional job was playing the lead in Neil Simon’s I Ought To Be In Pictures at the Manchester Home Theatre. It was for this she won the Manchester Evening News award for Best Newcomer. Other credits include Lewis, Eastenders, Casualty and the BAFTA nominated short We Are What We Drink.
Kirsty is fortunate enough to travel the world filming large campaign adverts for brands like Heinz, Hotels.Com, Microsoft, Mars and ITV Hub. Chances are you’ve seen her on your screens eating Maltesers, crying over soup or bathing with a bearded gentleman… Acting is a very strange profession.
She is currently developing a play with Soho Theatre Writer’s Lab, and her short film Aeroplanes (directed by Cannes winner Paul Shammasian) is screening at festivals around the world. Her lyrical play The System was long-listed for the 2017 Papatango Award and in 2016 she co-wrote Might Never Happen with Doll’s Eye Theatre.
Fun fact: Kirsty is a published poet. She’s performed her work in various obscure locations including a strip club. When not partaking in acting or script writing she’s often hiding in cafes scribbling lyrics on napkins. Her poetry can be can be found at her Instagram account: @kitosmon
Fun Fact: She has an unhealthy addiction to peanut butter and and despite adult life firmly on her horizons, she still doesn’t know how to iron a shirt.
Kati Donlon produced, as part of Infinity Theatre, her sell-out show The Disappearance of Edward J Neverwhere at BasicSpace Festival 2017. She produced Blackout at the Bedford Fringe Festival (2016) and was the Assistant Producer on the five star Valiant (Hannah Johnson Productions) at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2015. She recently managed R&D for Red Women Theatre's Lesbos, at the Arcola Theatre.
She combines all her freelance work with her role as Assistant to the Artistic Director at the Regent's Park Open Air Theatre, from where she insufferably Instagrams about her 'commute' through the park.
Fun fact: Kati studied International Politics at Kings College London, rather than getting a degree relevant to her actual industry. Perks include being smug at dinner parties, and to be honest, not much else.
