"dazzling and intricate" - everything
growing up in north yorkshire on a diet of roald dahl,
chris rea and my granddad's tall tales i
always knew i wanted to tell stories.
now based in london i trained at east 15 acting school,
on the national theatre directors course and was
national theatre new works department resident director 2018/19.
i'm excited by work that explores class and experiments with form.
i aim to create performances that are mischievous,
collaborative and full of heart. inclusion and
participation is another important strand to my practice.
i regularly lead workshops for orginisations including the old vic,
almeida and national theatre learning.
i've directed productions at a variety of drama schools
and am a proud tutor with open door.
collaboration with actors is at the core of
my practice - creating a space which feels safe,supported
and focused in order to empower clear, bold and playful choices.
i offer coaching sessions to help prepare for drama
school auditions, self tapes/meetings and any other
creative problem-solving you might need.
if you'd like to chat about us working
together you can contact me here.
i'm delighted to be represented by rachel chambers
at jonathan arun group, who can be found here.
i'm passionate about working with emerging artists
and actors in training. i'm excited to
develop and direct work in spaces where you can be playful,
curious and brave. i've been lucky enough to work
with training institutions including east 15,
arts ed and the national youth theatre rep company.
devised by the company after the work of robert greene
