I spent 3 years at drama school, Birmingham School of Speech Training and Dramatic Art (1977-1980) this was a stagecraft and acting course.I was very fortunate to play very diverse roles including Lady Bracknell (Importance of being Ernest) I was aged 20 playing this role.
Since leaving drama school I have done a lot of amateur productions, including playing Billy Liars mother. I was a member of the Festival Players for a few years (based in Loughborough) my name then was Sian Ketley. I have done pantomine as well. I enjoy playing contrasting roles and many have been outside my comfort zone.
N. J. Crisp’s DANGEROUS OBSESSION was notable in that it had only three in the cast, superbly played by Sian Ketley (Lewin), Nicholas Grainger and Steven Illidge and unerringly directed by Pauline Inkley.
ABSURD PERSON SINGULAR, Alan Ayckbourn’s comedy which followed, was set in three different kitchens and brought outstanding performances from Sian Ketley, Christine Moore and in fact all the cast of the three couples.
