Jamie Webb is a writer, performer, and former secondary school teacher. He is the writer of 'Teaching British Values', first performed in Cambridge in February 2018, and the comedic one-man show 'Susan Macbeth', a jouney through the surreal reality of life as a teacher.
Previous praise for the performer:
‘This boundary between fact and fiction becomes confused in the mind of the brain-damaged Michal, played by an accomplished Jamie Webb.’ (Varsity, The Pillowman)
‘Webb’s witty, assertive, sexually aggressive Sandra strips away the make-up, articulates a profoundly dislocated sense of self, takes us back to her time as a frightened child who pretended to be brave in order to appear brave in the eyes of others. Each performance was utterly compelling…. This was a play that constantly pushed its characters to the very edge.’ (Cambridge Theatre Review, Manon Sandra)
‘Jamie Webb’s Sandra was equally superb; his flamboyance and outspokenness, and his gestures floating camply through the air, created such a foil to the dour mood of Manon’s monologues that it sent the audience into frequent fits of laughter.’ (Varsity, Manon Sandra)
‘Webb….is particularly strong…..David is adorably clueless throughout; he is nervous and apologetic around Fran, and his obsession with life-drawing and full frontal nudity are brave additions if nothing else.’ (Ed Fringe Review, Occupied)
