Rebecca enrolled in the ‘Norwich Theatre Royal’ arts course at the age of eight, after her mother’s advice. She finally studied the fundamentals of theatre, which helped her profession later. Rebecca, however, was more drawn toward humour than the other students there.

She went to the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art and has appeared on stage in productions of Temple at the Donmar Warehouse, Pomona at the National Theatre, and Blackout Songs at the Hampstead Theatre.

She writes the script for the popular comedy play ‘Dizney Rascal.’ She is a major admirer of ‘Disney,’ which served as her inspiration when writing the screenplay for this play. This also marked her debut at the ‘Edinburgh Fringe Festival,’ the world’s largest arts festival.

Moreover, she was then cast in two plays, ‘Temple’ and the mystery thriller ‘Pomona.’ She played a prostitute named ‘Fay’ in the latter. Rebecca continued her TV career, playing Jennifer in ITV’s post-apocalyptic romantic comedy “Cockroaches.”

She wrote the musical theatre piece ‘Prom Kween.’ The play premiered in 2016 at the ‘Underbelly,’ Cowgate, and told the true story of Matthew Crisson, a student who was named “prom queen” at ‘La Guardia High School’ in New York.
