Abby Howells: HarleQueen

From Standing Room Only, 2:25 pm on 31 May 2020

Actor, writer and comedian Abby Howells had a new play about to hit the stage but lockdown has forced her to work on other projects.She is working with London based NZ producer Naomi Wallwork on a new screenplay and collaborating with kiwi performance legend Jo Randerson to write her own musical. 

Her comedy show HarleQueen saw her win the Best Emerging Artist award at the Adelaide Fringe Festival earlier this year. She was going to be bringing the show to the New Zealand Comedy Festival, but plans change. Somehow she's also finding time to finish her PhD in theatre and write comedy!
