Ava Borthwick

Hello, I’m Ava, an actor, director and producer, and leader of Rotten Orange Productions. I’ve aspired to work in the film and theatre industries since I was little, and have been able to be part of some amazing projects and performances along the way. From plays to feature films, I’m hoping to tell stories important to me, ones with engaging messages at their heart. I’ve been very lucky to do that already with several projects, including lots of shows with Dramsoc & Spotlights at Bristol Uni, a sell out run of Attendants at Ed Fringe 2023, an original play (created by myself and two friends, Lola and Amelie). I also directed and produced The Riot Club, and was involved with producing and performing in various other productions at school. I am currently studying Theatre and Film at the University of Bristol, and hope to create many stories and projects during my time there.
