Meet our newest Guest Blogger Laura Purvis

Hi, I’m Laura Purvis, I am about to begin my final year of Journalism, Media and Culture BA (Hons) at Newcastle University. I have always had a passion for writing and love theatre. Being able to combine the two is my idea of heaven. I realised my passion for this area when writing a review for my course. I loved every minute of it, and it has been my most successful piece of work produced to date at the university.

Theatre fascinates me in many ways, whether it’s the set design, script writing or live performance. The level of creativity and logistics involved in getting a show from an idea to a finished piece really grabs my attention. I am a fan of live entertainment in most forms, but I find theatre, particularly good theatre, has the biggest impact on me and leaves an impression.

I am very excited with the opportunity of being Live Theatre’s guest blogger this month and look forward to seeing the shows, finding out about the productions and being able to share my reflections on them.
