In 2016 Louise began touring her critically acclaimed one-woman-show ‘No Petticoats Here’ about extraordinary women of the First World War. Louise’s second one-woman-show ‘The Hard Way’, the story of working class suffragette Hannah Mitchell was created in 2019. ‘Florence: the lesser known life and legacy of Florence Nightingale’ is Louise’s third touring production and was created with ACE funding in 2020.
