Diane Quinn is the co-founder and artistic director of ‘Unseen Theatre’, an audio podcast showcasing original plays featuring female protagonists.
She is also a professional dancer, singer, actor, choreographer, director, company manager and playwright.
Diane trained in ballet as a child and then went into musical theatre, regional and national theatre and film and television. Eventually, through dancing and singing and focusing on the musical aspect of her career, she transitioned into becoming an actor.
She always knew that she wanted to perform in character because she loved reading plays as a child and enjoys inhabiting character and learning about the lives that she hasn’t led.
Her latest project, ‘Unseen Theatre’, is an audio podcast that showcases original plays that have not yet been produced. They all have a female protagonist. She wanted to share female stories and the different perspective a female has when going through life. The plays also deal with various current political issues.
Diane really loves an audio format as it allows the imagination to be activated. Most importantly, she wanted to be involved in something that was accessible to a large group of people regardless of location, financial situation and mobility.
‘Unseen Theatre’ is available in all podcast platforms.
