With only 12 hours notice, on 12 June 2022 our client Katherine Lunney flew out with two other actors from the UK to cover multiple roles in TNT's production of Othello when sadly three of the cast tested positive for Covid.

A great example of our client's versatility, passion and teamwork attitude.

Katherine has agreed to go out to cover the role of Emilia for performances across Europe in July and August 2022 due to cast unavailability
