“We met Almudena at the Greenwich Theatre, we shared a glass of wine with mutual friends after having performed our show You and Me. It was all smiles and laughter and the prelude of a long artistic and personal friendship.
After many years in UK theatre, Almudenal recently moved to Madrid and we want to talk to her about new beginnings, changing roles and her long love of puppetry. “
