I have just filmed a piece for the Holst Birthplace Museum about a day in the life of their maid, Julia. It will be going live in the coming months.
In 2020, I set up Theatrephonic - an audiodrama podcast. You can download episodes wherever you get your podcast, or visit https://catonapiano.uk/theatrephonic/ for more information.
The film version of A Woman's Life is presently in post-production, being edited by my company, Cat on a Piano Productions. The footage is coming together nicely and I can't wait for it to be released.
A riveting performance, quietly poignant, yet radiating hope, anxiety, expectation, wry humour and sadness.
Emmeline Braefield gives a masterful and nuanced performance as Mel, a pressure cooker of anxiety, anger, pain and love right up to the very last - and very moving - moment
Emmeline Braefield and Pippa Meekings surpassed themselves with their portrayals...They clearly relished their roles, and that was infectious.
(As You Like It)
Phenomenal acting – it made me forget that it was only one person and a set stage;
Emmeline's confident and edgy performance provokes laughter, and eventually, tears (After Aulis)
I thoroughly enjoyed Emmeline's Lady Olivia, whose irrepressible sense of humour and lust for life and love bubbled over despite her initial sadness. Her expressive face enchanted the audience.
Emmeline Braefield... [was] faultless;
Hermia (Emmeline Braefield) is wonderfully passionate; bewitched, bothered and bewildered.
(A Midsummer Night's Dream)
The pub girl-cum-floozy, Rosie Redmond (Emmeline Braefield) had such good delivery, I'd have her on my 'A' list.
(The Plough and the Stars)
Emmeline Braefield is superb as Tranio.
(Taming of the Shrew)
