Theatre maker | Filmmaker | Poet | Performer | Producer | Producer and Editor of The Offies Awards and OffWestEnd.com
Lauren is a writer, producer and performer with real passion for exhilarating new writing and experimenting with form. She writes, produces and performs theatre, poetry and films and likes nothing more than to collaborate with artists to create a daring new understanding of what theatre can be and should say.
Artistic Director and Executive Producer - Open Dare (https://opendare.net/) launching at the end 2017!
A provocateur. A theatre maker. A challenger of the status quo. Her work celebrates with a wholly unique flair, poeticism and comedy - the ordinary - and gives a sharp voice to the underrepresented and seldom explored stories and truths. ‘Gauge is a talent to watch’ (The Play’s The Thing UK) her visceral productions leap into the heart of audience through speaking the raw truth, which can be heart-achingly hilarious, explosively bold and defiantly different.
