Julia Haythorn

Coach • Communications Trainer • Performer


Julia Haythorn trained at Leeds University, East 15 Acting School and Guildhall School of Music and Drama.  She specialised in classical theatre and has performed all over the country, playing a wide variety of Shakespearean roles including Portia, Lady Macbeth and Rosalind.

She set up Gloriana Productions in order to bring theatre to new venues and at the same time to raise money for charity.  In co-production with many charities, including the NSPCC, the British Deaf Association and the British Lung Foundation, she organised two nationwide tours of Twelfth Night and The Tempest which raised thousands of pounds for these good causes.

She is now producer for Rare Fortune Productions which presents new and popular classic plays in London.

She is an experienced corporate role player and improviser. This includes training simulations for Pricewaterhouse Coopers in Eastern Europe and Russia, and murder mystery and team building performances for a wide range of blue chip clients.

Julia Haythorn began her writing career with a play for children, The Spooky Roadshow,  which toured to primary schools all over the country.  Her recent play Old Girls won first place at the Wimbledon BookFest.  She also writes murder mystery games which have been performed hundreds of times. These are now downloaded and played worldwide, see Murder Mystery Games.  Her latest murder mystery plot is called Murder Ahoy! and is, unsurprisingly, set on a cruise liner…
