Theresa Cole

Biography

Starting as an entertainer in her teens, Theresa then received formal training as an actor at the Oxford School of Drama after attending Aberdeen University. She also spent twelve years honing her improvisation skills in London. Dedicated to always being in an industry she loves, she has combined acting with sporadically teaching drama in schools.

Her talent and commitment have earned her accolades, including Best Actor and Best Play awards at the Anna Scher Theatre and the Graham Fletcher-Cook award from the Outcasts Theatre Company.

Theresa performed in the real story of the Post Office scandal, False Accounts, written by Lance Nielsen, and realised that theatre can make a difference.

She wrote and produced short animation I Am Tree, which recently won Best Environmental Film at the Folkestone Film Festival.

She has produced five short films and umpteen plays, plus directed school, fringe and amateur productions. After Theresa performed a one woman show last year at Edinburgh Fringe, she was compelled to start a festival of theatre and comedy in Folkestone.
