Pia’s theatre experience spans a couple of decades and many different roles. She’d be hard-pressed to pick her favourites – but here are some of the contenders. Diana in All’s Well That Ends Well, Ronette in Little Shop of Horrors, Anita in West Side Story, Fraulein Kost in Cabaret, The Vagina Monologues, Pam/Popo in Fat Men in Skirts, Sue in A Slice of Saturday Night, Landlady in Two, Roxie in Chicago, Frankie in Frankie & Johnny in the Clair de Lune, Sarah in Company, Michelle Dubois in ‘Allo ‘Allo, Mistress Quickly in The Merry Wives of Windsor, Titania in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Sarah in Seascape, Anna in Appuntamenti, Maria in Twelfth Night, Fudgie in Fatboy, Shelf/Bath in The Seduction of Almighty God, Paulette in Legally Blonde, Golde in Fiddler on the Roof, Anna in Old Times, Mary in The Memory of Water, Denise in Lampedusa, Rosie in Mamma Mia and finally, after a ten-year wait – Abby in Stitching. You also possibly saw her last Christmas making fun of the nation as part of The Comedy Knights troupe. Oh, and in case you missed it, she was a Fridge in Panto in the early ‘90s!
When not on stage, Pia teaches Public Speaking and Debating, and is also a voice-over artist and occasional writer. She particularly likes ranting. And whiskey.
She is extremely excited to be back at MSpace, and equally terrified at the magnitude of the size and wordiness of the role of Maniac!
