Pat Boothman


Pat has enjoyed an international career, performing in theatre, radio, television and film, as well as directing plays and teaching drama, in London, Toronto, Hong Kong and Cape Town. She trained at Teacher’s Training College in Cape Town, George Brown College in Toronto (Drama) and Oxford (BADA Drama). 

Her theatre credits are many but, highlights include Three Tall Women in Toronto, many comedies including How the Other Half Loves also in Toronto, Blithe Spirit (she played Madam Arcati), Inherit the Wind at London’s Old Vic and Ella’s Secret, a two-hander, in which she performed and produced at London’s Barons Court Theatre. She has appeared in a Tesco’s Christmas commercial, shorts films including Baghead and been on a number of voice-overs and radio programmes.




Earlier this year Pat performed to sell out audiences at the Esher Theatre in Surrey, London playing a variety of roles in this pithy comedy.

The production was well received.

Part of the Pyrford Portraits series; Pat reads a poem by John Donne, a local poet.


In addition to  her recent production of A Coy Mistress Pat is also working on an arthouse web series production playing the title role of Don Quixote. The project is an ambitious one and will be filmed over a series of months.

Both the setting and the method of filming will be very different to the classic Cervantes book, set as it is on a narrowboat on the River Lea in North East London and involving a filming style where the camera operators and crew will form part of the production. It is the brainchild of award winning director Alexander Fodor.


Pat’s most recent film is already an award winner having won the TriForceFest competition to achieve funding.

Pat plays a lead role in this film realised by Director Alberto Corredor, playing a sinister witch –

a striking contrast to her usual casting but the director was taken by the potential shown in her showreel.

The movie’s progress can be followed through the director’s Facebook page.

In 2016 Pat played the title role of Ella in this production in which she not only performed but also produced at London’s prestigious Baron’s Court Theatre.

The play centres around two women whose lives have been affected by the same Nazi-SS officer.

The production re-established her already solid artistic relationship with Edward Davies as director and Peggy Mahon who she played opposite in this enigmatic two hander.
