Ausette is a Glasgow-based actor and producer.

She is hoping to engage with new works, as well as reimagining and repurposing classical texts for modern audiences. Much of her work focuses on outreach and accessibility to subjects including Shakespeare, climate science, and space for thoughtful expression.
Odhran is a writer, poet and habitual apple-cart upsetter.
Commissioned by Vanishing Point in 2022, he works to place emphasis on trans and queer joy through his writing - creating the perfect balance of witty mischief and thought-provoking reflections on gender, identity and positivity. Drawing from his experience of transition in the UK, Odhran will bring you intricate details, politics and heartfelt honesty, all with a sense of the optimism of youth.
Odhran was particularly excited to create this piece as it allows freedom for celebration of the calm contentment that accompanies queer relationships in 2023. He is particularly interested in taking queer-specific experiences and translating them into universal emotions that will be resonant with diverse audiences.
