Who is Natasha Wood?
While the usual phrase is "confined to a wheelchair," there isn't anything that confines this witty Brit's spirit. Wood is living her dream of performing her one woman autobiographical play in the UK and US.
She had quite the jet-set life in England with a fairytale marriage, quirky parents, siblings, and a hot job as production manager for the BBC. Wood worked as an actor in her early twenties before launching a career behind the camera at the BBC including stints in News, Entertainment, Children's, Live and Documentaries - but she can't lift a pint of milk. She can't walk, either. She has a neuromuscular condition called SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy).
Sometimes through tears, her story is an empowering, humorous, one-of-a-kind take on life, love and lingerie - with a little disability and love of firemen thrown in - that inspires others to live as large as Wood does on a daily basis.
Rolling with Laughter recently opened as a World Premiere in Hollywood, California to critical acclaim.
Wood has received coverage on local news stations including a Live Broadcast at the theatre on Fox News - see press.
