We are delighted to welcome Fisola to the China Plate team.

Over the next couple of weeks, as part of a B-Experienced Internship from the University of Birmingham, Fisola will be working as a Producing Assistant alongside the team on Wuthering Heights, as we head out on the road for its world premiere tour!

Can you introduce yourself?

Hello, I’m Fisola. I am a final year English student with a passion for creative things.

If you were to describe your character in three words, what would they be?

Curious, Creative, Caring

What are you hoping to do when you’ve graduated from university?

Immerse myself in good books and theatre for fun without having to write an essay about it! I want to keep creating my own work and also get experience in producing and facilitating.

What are your hobbies outside of work?

I love to read and watch things and share my opinion. I love work that centres black, female voices. I am a big foodie so I love going out to eat – the way to my heart is tofu!

What excites you about working with China Plate and on Wuthering Heights?

I am excited about Wuthering Heights being reimagined for a new audience. I think period pieces are always brilliant, lively shows. I can’t wait to learn with the team at China Plate as I add producing to my creative toolkit. I’m excited to make fun content that builds anticipation for Wuthering Heights.

Coming to Northampton, Oxford, Coventry, London, and Newcastle, Wuthering Heights will have its world premiere at Royal & Derngate, Northampton from 24 April – 6 May 2023, before touring to Oxford Playhouse from 9-13 May, Warwick Arts Centre from 16-18 May, Rose Theatre, Kingston from 23-27 May; concluding at Northern Stage from 6-10 June.
