Tara Clark has always found it incredibly difficult talking about herself.
A graduate of the Actors’ College of Theatre and Television, Tara has performed on stage, television and in film.
In 2010 she co-wrote [with Oleg Pupovac] and performed in In Stereo, which premiered at The Old Fitz. In 2013 she co-founded indie theatre company Two Peas with now-husband Oleg Pupovac. Given the honour of presenting [and performing in] the very first production of The Old 505 Theatre’s inaugural subscription season, We’re Bastards, the performance left one critic feeling, “Since big guns Belvoir and Sydney Theatre Co have both gotten off to rocky starts this year, theatre-goers are lucky to have such productions as We’re Bastards as an alternative to the mediocre [or just plain bad] offerings from elsewhere.”*
Tara’s most recent theatre performance work includes the Australian premiere of Jez Butterworth’s Jerusalem, nominated for 7 Sydney Theatre Awards in 2014. The same year she wrote and directed Jennifer Forever, which was described as a, “ … thought-provoking piece of theatre, such a brave and bold accomplishment.”** Outside of performance, she works primarily in business development and marketing, with a speciality in finance administration and operations.
Her favourite plays include After Miss Julie by Marber and Saved by Bond.
Her dream role is to play Sylv in Berkoff’s East.
