This week I had the pleasure of a catch up with an old friend. The lovely Joann Condon! Many of you may well recognise Jo from her role of 'Pat' in Fat Fighters in 'Little Britain'. Jo has also appeared in everything from 'Shine On Harvey Moon' to 'The Office' to 'Skins'. I know Jo from a gay play we appeared in many years ago - when we could both still get away with playing teenagers! We catch up on the decades we've missed and Jo's journey to writing her one woman show 'Little Boxes' - which opens next week as part of the Vaults Festival. We talk about everything from growing up in the east end, and Jo's path through school to acting, to Boy George, and the influence he had on Jo as a teenager. We had such a lovely, fun chat and for those of you yet to meet Jo, this is your chance to jump in, grab a a cuppa, and get to know this very genuine and funny lady. Tickets for Jo's show are available at vaultfestival.com The show plays from Jan 28th to Feb 6th at 6pm. Please have a look at the company Jo has set up with Leonie Rachel - Alphamum Productions.
