Julia Haythorn

Coach • Communications Trainer • Performer


I trained at Leeds University, East 15 Acting School and Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

I have recently enjoyed performing at the OSO Arts Centre in Barnes where I played Ruth in Alan Ayckbourn’s Round and Round the Garden and also appeared in From This Day Forward by Nicolas Ridley and Murder by the Book by Robin Miller.

I have been lucky enough to  play many Shakespearean roles including Portia, Lady Macbeth and Rosalind and toured all over the country and in France.

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

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

I am 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.

My first play was for children, The Spooky Roadshow, which toured to primary schools and theatres all over the country.  My more recent play Old Girls won first place at the Wimbledon BookFest and was part of Waiting in the Wings a collection of short plays performed at the OSO Arts Centre in Barnes and which reopened the theatre after the pandemic.

I also write murder mystery games which have been performed hundreds of times.
