Louise is currently touring the UK playing Miss Marple in Agatha Christie's A MURDER IS ANNOUNCED after recently playing Beth in Timberlake Wertenbaker's new play WINTER HILL at the Bolton Octagon.
Louise is best known for her regular roles in DOC MARTIN, EASTENDERS, RIVER CITY, RIDES, TENKO, THE OMEGA FACTOR, SECRET DIARY OF ADRIAN MOLE, BERGERAC and as a former DOCTOR WHO Assistant.
More recently she has appeared in HOLBY CITY, Jacqueline Wilson's THE DUMPING GROUND for the BBC, Channel 4's sitcom TOAST OF LONDON and DOCTORS.
Before that she was starring in the 60th Anniversary production of THE MOUSETRAP UK Tour in 2016.
Louise has been writing all her life, poems and short stories, but it is only this century that she decided to claim the title ‘writer’ and has had quite a success, with nearly every script written being produced either for stage or audio.
Most excitingly and most recently (launched this April) Louise has devised and overseen a four part audio drama concerning WWII female pilots called ATA GIRL for BIG FINISH PRODUCTIONS and is currently in discussions with a view to turning it into a TV series.
Also for BIG FINISH PRODUCTIONS Louise has worked on a number of series including: SURVIVORS, episodes For the Good of the Cause and Mother's Courage and OMEGA FACTOR, episodes Let the Angel Tell Thee and Phantom Pregnancy. Louise also co-wrote The Abandoned episode for DOCTOR WHO, co-written with Nigel Fairs. The episode was played on Radio 4 extra. Louise has been commissioned to write a four part script for DOCTOR WHO where the Doctor meets Marie Curie!
For stage, Louise's work includes:
Pulling Faces (co-written with Helen Goldwyn) A one woman show which Louise has toured both here, America and Australia. A 60 minute comedy about whether to have a facelift. PUBLISHED BY UPSTAGE
My Gay Best Friend performed here and in America. Won Brighton Fringe best new play award, and most recently received 6 five star reviews at The Hope Theatre in Islington. And an offie nomination. A tragi-comedy. Two people stuck in their own closets, and how they rescue each other (or not).
Driving Me Round The Bend (co-written with Nigel Fairs) currently being considered by Sonning Mill Theatre. A two part Ayckbournesk Christmas comedy.
Shakespeare’s Mistress With a little help from Shakespeare – Louise presents her desert island disc choices linked with anecdotes from her 46 year career
Sixth Position – a monologue written for ballet dancer Holly Jackson Walters and described as a ‘tour de force’ with a four star review by the critics for the One Festival at The Space theatre this year.
Beware the Goblin Men – A short story for children, featuring music from composer John Telfer. Inspired by Christina Rossetti’s poem Goblin Market, this story highlights the need for sisters to support each other whilst taking the young audience on an exciting and sometimes scary journey through the story (aimed at 4 – 9 year olds). The idea of this piece is to include children from the local drama groups and have them play the Goblins, leaving the actresses free play the roles Primrose and Bluebell. It can be done with a cast of two. An audio clip of this project can be downloaded from Louise’s website, www.louisejameson.com.
Wotcha Will – A versatile script, aimed at young teenagers, it has been performed by professionals and students, written with just a little help from William Shakespeare, this links all the ‘best bits’ of Shakespeare into a circus. The casts have been as small as 6 and as large as 46.
Louise has also been working on SISTER SISTER, a hard hitting film script examining the repercussions of rape, not just on the victim, but the family, friends and perpetrator. Dark and prescient. I believe that this is a safe place to debate dangerous issues, and this is a story that has to be told.
Currently in development, Louise is working on A WOMAN'S PLACE, a TV series looking at forgotten female scientists and their legacy. So many women from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries have been overlooked and their work plagiarised. In consultation with (scientist) Paul Abel this series looks to redress that, and the stories are fascinating and multiple.
