About

Naomi is currently starring  as the lead role of Sylvia in Jamie Lloyd's revival of Alexei Kaye Campbell’s The Pride in a short, 3 week tour.

The show had a sell-out run at the Trafalgar Studios earlier this Autumn and starred Hayley Atwell as Sylvia with Naomi as her stand in - going on in the role while Hayley was on first call elsewhere. Also taking part in the tour are original cast members Matthew Horne, Harry Hadden-Paton and Al Weaver.

The show will go from Brighton to Manchester and then will finish in Richmond in the week of the 27th Jan 2014

"And Naomi Sheldon has depth and wisdom as Sylvia, betrayed and broken in the past, loyal and filled with hope in the present. You could not hope to see such a finely tuned cast."

Mid Sussex Times

In the summer of 2013, she played the role of Hermia in the Royal & Derngate's production of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM set amongst an Edwardian household - directed by Gary Sefton.

But they can’t begin to compete with the wonderful Hermia of Naomi Sheldon (also a gloriously prim Quince, and a mattress sandwich of a Wall), a naturally gifted comedian... The Stage

She performed with the RSC in the role of Anne Page in MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR (directed by Phillip Breen) and the role of Seal in THE MOUSE AND HIS CHILD (directed by Paul Hunter).

Naomi Sheldon is enchanting as a toy seal, but really touches the heart in a brief appearance as a broken-down donkey, whose giant eyes grow ever more trusting yet terrified as Manny smilingly invites her to 'rest’. It is moments such as these that characterise this uncompromising production, which shows death and cruelty then moves restlessly onwards. Bold, strange, and utterly brilliant.
Laura Thompson, The Telegraph

Last year, Naomi appeard in the sell-out run of Stefan Golaszewski’s play SEX WITH A STRANGER with Russell Tovey and Jaime Winstone to rave reviews.

But it is Naomi Sheldon as Ruth who really captures the attention.
Michael Billington, The Guardian

Naomi Sheldon pierces the heart.
Charles Spencer, The Telegraph

Naomi appeared in the second series of BBC2's THE HOUR and in DOCTORS for BBC1.

She was awarded a Carlton Hobbs Award prize for BBC Radio Drama in 2011.
