Tara has always found it incredibly difficult talking about herself. The one thing she finds more daunting than stepping out on stage is sitting down to write about all the times she's stepped out on stage.
A graduate of The Actor's College of Theatre and Television, Tara is a realiser of creative ideas.
Her most recent stage performances include Darling Mae Thomas in Old 505's inaugural subscription season production, We're Bastards and Tanya Crawley in the Australian premier of Jez Butterworth's Jerusalem, a production which earned 7 Sydney Theatre Awards nominations in 2014.
The same year she wrote and directed Jennifer Forever, since published by Playlab Indie and described as a "...thought provoking piece of theatre, such a brave and bold accomplishment."*
" if i read another female character description that begins with
'wife/girlfriend of...' i think i'm gonna scream "
In 2016 she co-wrote (with Kieran Foster) and directed Drift, performed at ATYP and since published by Australian Plays.
After being asked time and again to manage press and marketing for fellow theatre and production companies, in 2014 she formed IMPRESS, a boutique Press and PR service for independent theatre makers. She has provided such services to Outhouse Theatre Co, BullAnt Productions, Some Company, Moore Cocks and others.
In 2017 she was invited to join the Women in Theatre and Screen (WITS) Committee.
None of this, however, pays her rent.
Her favourite plays include After Miss Julie by Marber and Saved by Bond.
Her dream role is to play Sylv in Berkoff’s East.
