SOPHIE “ROLAND” TOLAND
Commonly known as Roland, Sophie is originally from Cheshire and graduated from Hull University with a first-class honours degree in Drama and English. She trained as an actor at the Birmingham School of Acting and gained a distinction-level MA before returning to Manchester like a biased homing pigeon.
For the past few years she’s worked with various Northern companies including Happystorm Theatre, Dapper Productions at the 24:7 Festival, Ribcaged Theatre – and more recently, BAPS Theatre, a new company she co-runs with two other local actors – as well as numerous role play, workshop leading and language teaching positions. When she’s not pratting about on a stage somewhere, she can generally be found either writing, working on her upcoming YouTube series ‘The Awkward Eater’ or collaborating with Short End Media on new webseries and audio projects. Or perhaps knitting something fancy.
Sophie has worked with Rotten Park Road as an actress since 2015 and as a Producer since 2017. She also co-manages Rotten Park Road Management.
