Phoebe Frances Brown is an actor. From her early impressions of Dolly Parton, to becoming a member of Nottingham Television Workshop, from co-founding the sketch group Major Labia to roles at The Donmar Warehouse, Birmingham Rep and The National Theatre, acting has defined, formed and driven who she is.
In November 2018, aged 26, Phoebe was diagnosed with an incurable brain tumour in the area of her brain that controls speech, language and memory.
The Glad Game is Phoebe’s story. Her story of finding herself in the darkest, bleakest of times, of finding gladness in the saddest of moments and of how who and what you love can pull you through.
