Alex Stenhouse

Director

  • Location: London & Bristol
  • Career stage: Early
  • Freelancer: Available

I'm Alex Stenhouse and I'm a director and writer, working in London and the South West.

I predominately work in theatre, but also in film, and I try to create work that is bold and engaging.

I was recently Assistant Director on 'Elegies for Angels, Punks and Raging Queens' at the Union Theatre, 'Seussical' at the Southwark Playhouse and 'My Dad's Gap Year' at The Park Theatre

I recently completed a ‘developing playwriting’ course at the National Theatre with Ryan Craig, and was part of Shakepeare's Globe's 'Directing Studio'.

I wish to continue to gain more experience through assisting, as well as creating and leading my own theatre and film projects.

Training: University of Exeter, National Youth Music Theatre (NYMT), Young Vic Directors Programme
