Alice Barber

Theatre Producer and Copywriter

  • Location: Yorkshire
  • Career stage: Entry
  • Freelancer: Available

I am a Yorkshire-based theatre producer, English Literature graduate, and freelance copywriter.

I am currently Resident Producer for Knaïve Theatre and Front Room Productions. Earlier in 2017, I took my first Arts Council funded project, ‘Unsung’, into Research and Development. ‘Unsung’ explored the untold stories of the women who made – or ought to have made – British history, and will undergo further development later this year.

Prior to this I was Assistant Producer for Slung Low’s ‘Flood’ for Hull UK City of Culture, and in my final year of University negotiated exceptional staging rights to produce the world’s first all-female version of ‘The History Boys’, which culminated in sell out performances in June 2016. From 2014 - 2015 I was the Producer for Green Door Theatre Company, under which role I produced The Importance of Being Earnest, Charley's Aunt, and The Foreigner.
