Shows That Shaped Me is a new theatre podcast from WhatsOnStage in which we ask leading theatre actors and makers about their most memorable productions, the production they wished they'd seen and the person, dead or alive, that they'd most like to work with.

This week's guest is Tony and Olivier Award nominee Kate Fleetwood.

Growing up in Stratford-upon-Avon, Kate began her career as a child actor with the Royal Shakespeare Company.

In 2010 she played Lady Macbeth in Chichester Festival Theatre's production of the Scottish play, gaining a Tony Award nomination for the show's Broadway transfer. 2015 saw her play Tracy Lord in High Society at the Old Vic and the title role in Medea at the Almeida.

At the National Theatre she has played Goneril in King Lear in 2014, was nominated for an Olivier Award for London Road in 2015, and now returns to star in Joe Hill-Gibbins' production of Rodney Ackland's Absolute Hell until 16 June.
