Dorothy Grace Laity
While pantomime and comedy are her specialist areas and first love, Dorothy has also performed in a wide variety of other disciplines at home and abroad.
Highlights have included playing as Colin in Mother Goose, Hermia & Helena in A Midsummer Night's Dream (not at the same time, of course), Griffon in Alice the Musical and Yvette in 'Allo, 'Allo.
Favourite work in other disciplines has included working as a presenter/journalist with the Talking Newspapers Network, as well as various productions in TIE, street theatre, accessible Shakespeare and many others.
Now based mainly in Ireland, she continues to work as a freelance actor, voice artist and technician, with a sideline in promoting visibility and greater equality for performers with disabilities. In 2014 she was featured in the film portion of the multi-discipline "The Body Love Project" in a segment on life in the industry for performers with disabilities.
She lives in County Westmeath with her Actor/Magician husband and her assistance dog, Emma. They share their home with rescue cats and chickens, as well as two fish - Plato and Aristotle.
In her limited spare time, she plays in a competitive knitting group on ravelry and is a member of ICA.
