Susan Elkin interviews Chickenshed’s Brenda McGuirkThe “ever-reliable Brenda McGuirk” was how I described her performance, earlier this year in a review of a recording of Chickenshed’s 2014 production of Peter Pan. Yes, Brenda (42) is a talented Chickenshed stalwart – and now, for the first time, she is directing the company’s Christmas show, Ever After (read the review). That’s why she and I have met to chat in a central London coffee shop over hot chocolate (her) and tea (me). I’ve seen her onstage so often that it’s a joy to meet her in real life at last.
