PAULA BENSON: GOI CO-FOUNDER AND ARTISTIC DIRECTOR.
“The company was born out of a desire to further the roles for women in theatre, both on and off the stage in a nurturing and supportive environment. To bring forward change by doing it ourselves with nothing but a punk-ethic attitude and a pure passion for storytelling. We’ve never been afraid to run with a vision, as is evident I think from the totally unique Shakespeare adaptations we do – the all-female element of which feels as culturally important today, as it did 16 years ago.”
“For me, fringe theatre is where the most interesting work is made, where creatives take risks and the fringes of society are heard. Having a wide network of theatre makers has meant we have continued to grow as a company and offer more opportunity to emerging artists.”
Velenzia is co-founder of get Over It Productions. She has over 10 year‘s experience on the London fringe theatre scene both on and off stage and is also the current Artistic Director of The Bread and Roses Theatre in Clapham.
VELENZIA SPEARPOINT: GOI CO-FOUNDER & PRODUCER.
Sassy has been a performer on the fringe scene in London since graduating East 15 in 2007. She did her first show with Get Over It Productions in 2015 and they couldn’t shake her.
SASSY CLYDE: MANAGING DIRECTOR.
“Working with GOI taught me about the theatre industry as a business. Rather than being at the whim of a casting directors ‘yes’ or ‘no’, being part of a theatre company allows for the opportunity to create truly fulfilling work - the reason I trained as an actor.”
