About Me

My name is Joyce Grey-Carter. I am 5ft 10” and of average build. I was born in London and I am of Jamaican parentage. I grew up in Finsbury Park, North London. I enjoy working as an Actress, Writer, Singer, Musician, Poet and Songwriter because I enjoy taking opportunities to express myself and reach the souls of others in doing so.
I also worked as a full-time, qualified and experienced Drama teacher and taught in Secondary Mainstream Schools and Special Schools in London for 27 years up until December 2017. I now work as an Actress and Voice Artist, teaching in between.

The Curse of the Internet Man

Description: Merch is an online superstar influencer. He's adored by millions online. But in the dark depths of his own mind he is faltered. He is deeply depressed and losing a grip on reality. The life he has created online is false, and the life he has in the real world is lonely and full of pain. He seeks help from a psychiatrist. But it is too late. This isn't an illness, it's a curse. The curse of the Internet Man. The only way out is for Merch to end it all, to rid himself of the pain of real world - and to embrace the nirvana of the silicon. An expressionist nightmare about our obsession with social media and fame.
