Patsy Ferran's previous theatre credits include Treasure Island (National Theatre), The Merchant of Venice (RSC) and Blithe Spirit (Gielgud Theatre). She is currently starring alongside Douglas Booth in Speech and Debate at Trafalgar Studios.
She took us backstage at the theatre to show us what she keeps in her dressing room.
PF: "My script/bible/brain. Every note, thought, doodle made during the rehearsal process is in this book. Without it, I wouldn't have a clue."
The Pot Plant
PF: "My potted daffodils given to me by Nat (costume supervisor) on press night. Accessorised with a paper flower and a fitting Speech and Debate badge."
PF: "My dressing room mug (originally chosen ironically, but now grown an attachment to it) which holds emergency chocolate, a sharpie pen and some disposable cutlery. You never know."
PF: "My make-up station. Believe me, without it, it can get scary."
PF: "Press night card from one of my best friends. She has unfailingly homemade her press night cards for me since my very first job and I just love them! One day I'll get them framed."
PF: "My dressing room comrade: Charlotte Lucas. This photo says it all. An absolute rockstar"
Speech and Debate runs at Trafalgar Studios until 1 April.
