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 Olivier Award-winner Nancy Carroll.

After graduating from LAMDA in 1998, her first job saw her star alongside Cate Blanchett and Rupert Everett in the big screen adaptation of Wilde's An Ideal Husband.

In 2010 she won an Olivier Award for her performance in After the Dance at the National Theatre, and more recent stage credits include Young Marx at the Bridge Theatre, Woyzeck at the Old Vic and The Duck House at the Vaudeville Theatre.

In 2015 she starred as Audrey Mildmay in David Hare's The Moderate Soprano at the Hampstead Theatre, a role she has returned to for the West End transfer, currently running at the Duke of York's Theatre until 30 June.
