If you’re only accepted based on your agreement, they don’t like you, but they love the reflection of themselves in you.

People don't like you talking about mental health. They find ways to disguise their displeasure. If male it's 'man up'. If female you're 'emotional'. If you're negative you're 'wallowing'. If positive you're offering 'platitudes'. Yet still, talk. Talk. Talk. Talk without shame.

13) Nothing has exasperated my mental health like being a black woman in British theatre. It’s a special kind of violence.

12) it’s the confidence of that same writer to leave your old agent and come to the one you were with, with the confidence that I wouldn’t have the power to tarnish his reputation the way he attempted to tarnish mine.

10) the companies I was working with, by writers guild, by my family - but I felt sick every single day of that summer. My Dad called me one night&he said - ‘this is what racism looks like. Deal with it. It’s subtle.’ And it is - it’s shes intimidating - it’s shes guilty -

9) the friend my agent had enough respect for to call, rather than me - their client. I was guilty without conversation - and that was MY agent - I couldn’t find peace with it and I felt powerless. Everyone around me told me to stay quiet about it. I was being supported by..
