Wendi Peters on why she loves new writing

Updated: Sep 24, 2019

Best known as Coronation Street’s Cilla Battersby-Brown, actress Wendi Peters has been treading the boards for 30 years.

Wendi is currently playing Sylvie in Call Me Vicky at the Pleasance Theatre in north London.

We chatted in her dressing room about how she started out improvising on stage at the Piccadilly Theatre when it was a club on a Saturday night in the 80s, how she went from being a dresser on the West End production of Into the Woods to playing in it as part of Sondheim’s 75th birthday celebrations, and how Coronation Street stopped her being seen for certain roles.

Call Me Vicky is on at the Pleasance Theatre until 9th March.
