Little Voice

Written and directed by Jim Cartwright.
2012. The first UK Tour. Lisa U/S Beverley Callard as MARI, and plays Raffle ticket tout Dolly as part of the ensemble cast, and also club act Georgina Formby.

“Cartwright, directing his own work, sets the whole piece in Mr Boo’s – so the audience enters the auditorium to Duggie Brown’s patter, the chance to buy raffle tickets and watch a few club acts. It worked a treat, for me. Nothing I like better than a sing-along with a female George Formby impressionist, honest.”
The Scarborough News, 2012

Ring Around the Humber

Hull Truck 2011. Written by Nick Lane, Morgan Sproxton, Richard Vergette, Sarah Davies.
Four one-act plays celebrating Hull life, connecting stories from 1941 to 2013.

"Lisa Howard is impressive in one of the few developed parts, the distraught over-possessive mother in The Storm (a nice line in absent-minded rudeness, too)."
What's on Stage, 2011

“Lisa Howard and Amy Rhiannon Worth make a suitably ghastly pair of sisters.”
The Guardian, 2008

Grimm Tales

Dukes Theatre. Written by Carol Ann Duffy. Directed by Ian Hastings.
Williamson Park Outdoor Promenade Theatre 2003

“The Golden Goose is a classic story of the youngest son, ‘Dummling', deemed to be stupid, who turns out to be our hero. Dummling the country boy gets the better of both his big brothers and the scheming and neurotic city folk, by dint of his generosity and native wit shown to great comic effect by the versatile Lisa Howard.”
