Happy Friday! Time for another Actor’s Spotlight!

This week, it is the turn of the fantastic Karen Bartke!

Karen Bartke 2014

Karen joined TWTC in 2010, and has played a variety of roles over the years – from Titania Queen of the Faeries, Robert Burns’ wife Jean Armour, to a number of wickedly wonderful characters in a variety of our Murder Mystery events! Karen is a very busy lady outwith TWTC…you might just recognise ‘Officer Karen’ from BBC One’s hilarious mockumentary ‘Scot Squad’! We love having Karen as a Core Company Member of TWTC, and we are thrilled to have Karen touring with us to Norfolk & Suffolk this month!
