The Creatives

Below is an alphabetic list of all those who have been involved in Theatrephonic.

Emmeline Braefield – Creator of Theatrephonic

During the 2020 pandemic, the ensuing creative withdrawal led Emmeline to dig up some old scripts she had never had the nerve to do anything about. Finding that they weren’t as terrible as she feared, but knowing that live theatre was going to be a difficulty, she asked her talented friends and colleagues if they wanted to do some socially distanced recording. Thus Theatrephonic was born.

Emmeline graduated from Royal Holloway University with a degree in Drama and French, then continued her acting training at Birmingham Theatre School. She can be seen in Haunted (Netflix) and My Constant Shadow.
She is a grade 8 singer (ABRSM), performing regularly with Amicantus choir. She also holds advanced performance combat qualifications with the APC.

Nigel Foster – Writer

Nigel was born into a family with significant focus on the performing arts – music, drama and radio broadcasting – although largely on the amateur side. Nigel spoke his first lines on stage at the age of 9, and subsequently took increasingly major roles each year throughout his school career, acting in Shakespeare, Gilbert & Sullivan, Oscar Wilde, and – during his first year at Uni – in Georg Buchner. Fate took a twist when he dropped out of Uni, and he found himself instead pursuing a career in business management, all his subsequent performances then being purely within the family. This opportunity to write for Theatrephonic is his first ever venture into script writing.
