If you've got the questions, they've got the answers*. *Depends on the questions. As seen on Flowers (C4 and Netflix).
" this double act could make anything funny...comedic bliss" **** Guardian
"every bit of the show... is exploited for comedy, and the result is a madcap romp of gentle silliness" **** One4Review
‘creative, fun and full of music and is not one to be missed.’ **** VoiceUKBook Now
Since graduating from the Cambridge Footlights (of the same vintage as the likes of Simon Bird and Joe Thomas) Anna & Helen have written for and performed on television, including appearing together in the BAFTA nominated film Black Pond and were recently seen together on Channel 4 and Netflix’s absurd black comedy Flowers.
Helen Cripps’s other TV credits include BBC’s Josh, E4’s Anna and Katy and BBC’s Horne and Corden. She is also an accomplished stage actor with credits including Persuasion at Royal Exchange Theatre, Julius Caesar at Donmar Warehouse and St. Ann’s Warehouse New York, The Low Road at Royal Court Theatre, and Earthquakes in London for the National Theatre. She also created the wildly popular web series Self Tapes with Sophia Di Martino.
"perfectly timed comedic delivery” **** Reviews Hub (for Persuasion)
Anna trained at LAMDA before touring productions throughout the UK in over 30 different theatres, with credits including The Events (Mercury Theatre); Sket (Park Theatre); Children of The Sun (National Theatre); Pygmalion and Sherlock Holmes: The Final Curtain (both for Theatre Royal Bath & UK Tours). She most recently played Benedick at the Watford Palace Theatre in an all-female production of Much Ado About Nothing to rave reviews.
“O’Grady radiating mirth over melancholy” **** The Stage (for Much Ado About Nothing)
As well as Flowers, she has also appeared in television shows Midsomer Murders (ITV), Holby City (BBC) and Doctors (BBC), and has just finished filming Bad Cramps for Comedy Central.
A talented musician, she has also played saxophone on the soundtrack of Flowers and composed the live piano score for My World Has Exploded A Little Bit (Underbelly, Ovalhouse Theatre).Book Now
