Tabitha could have been a lawyer. Or a doctor. Just ask her parents.

But she dropped out of law school and left her hometown of Hobart, Tasmania, in pursuit of a more theatrical life.

Tabitha's offbeat, intimate and highly physical approach to theatre making has seen her through many roles on and off stage. Her writing includes A Westerner’s Guide to the Opium Wars, Duckpond and House on Fire. As an actor, she has performed with Ninefold Ensemble, Pinchgut Opera, and with many writers and directors in new work development. She is a member of Ninefold Ensemble; part of the KXT/bAKEHOUSE Step Up Team 2018; and founder of indie theatre company Thirty Five Square.

In addition to producing her own work, she was a producer on Leaves in its Australian premiere (Some Company), Red Cross (Arrive. Devise. Repeat.), I Hate You My Mother (assistant producer, Real Harpy and White Box Theatre with Red Line Productions), MinusOneSister (assistant producer, Stories Like These for Griffin Independent). Tabitha has a Bachelor of Arts from University of Sydney and a Bachelor of Performance from the Australian Academy of Dramatic Art.
