About Mrs. Doubtfire
Daniel Hillard is a voice actor struggling to pick up the pieces after his divorce and losing custody of his beloved children. His days are filled with fruitless job searches and desperate attempts to secure a new place to live. Then one day, he stumbles upon his ex-wife's classified ad seeking a nanny and housekeeper. Seeing an opportunity to be near his children, Daniel devises a plan to transform himself into Mrs. Euphegenia Doubtfire, a sweet Scottish nanny who quickly endears herself to the family. As he grows closer to his kids, however, Daniel realises that his charade is becoming harder to maintain, especially as he finds himself falling for his ex-wife all over again.

From as early as I can recall, writing has always been my passion. Being able to combine this with my love for theatre has been a rewarding and exhilarating experience. I truly believe that there is magic in seeing a story brought to life on stage, and this is what I would like to promote to audiences.
