Laura Marziale

Laura is from Italy. She moved to London in 2005 after living in Tanzania and South Africa. She has a degree in African Languages and Cultures from Italy and an MA in Anthropology of Media from SOAS in London. She works in two different charities during the day but theatre has always been her passion. She has pursued it in all the countries she has lived in.

In London she is part of an amateur Italian theatre company called Teatro In-stabile. Her greatest challenge has been to act in English but overcoming her fear she joined Morley College’s Company in 2013. This has marked the beginning of an amazing journey for her.  She has played a variety of roles in short plays by Pinter, the lead roles in Antigone by Jean Anouih and Saturday, Sunday, Monday by Eduardo de Filippo (Donna Rosa). Laura performed as Lady Macbeth at Reboot Theatre’s production of Macbeth:Reboot and as Jess in Love and Money.
