Ishbel McFarlane, Education Director and Player
Born and raised in Sweden, Diana started singing as a result of her mother's involvement with children's activities at the local churches. Her favorite part of the year was right before Christmas when Lucia, the celebration of light and a day based around singing, came around.
Diana discovered her love for theater in two ways, first when she played Gretel in a school production and later via television when she saw Elizabeth Taylor play Maggie in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof by Tennessee Williams. She realized that was the job she wanted.
After an education in musical theater, Diana decided to focus on the finer points of acting and attended Drama Studio London. During this time, she fell in love with Shakespeare's plays until she moved to London to attend Drama Studio London. Through her now husband Jeffrey she found a deep appreciation and love for these plays.
Diana resides in New York City and is very happy to be a part of Stone Soup.
