I'm a Theatre Producer with a particular interest in new writing that has a social conscience. I enjoy engaging with new communities by using interaction and site in my work.
I am currently supported by Stage One in my training after being granted one of their prestigious producer placements. I am undertaking the regional trainee producer at Watford Palace Theatre until early 2018. http://stageone.uk.com
During Nov/Dec 2016 I produced a well-recieved & sold-out run of James Bridie's Dr Angelus at The Finbororugh Theatre, starring David Rintoul. http://www.finboroughtheatre.co.uk/productions/2016/dr-angelus.php
Alongside this I was also assistant producer at Tara Finney Productions Ltd. on her Autumn season 2016 assisting on productions including: The Acedian Pirates (Theatre503), good dog (Watford Palace Theatre & UK Tour with Tiata Fahodzi) and new musical Muted at The Bunker Theatre.
I began my career in theatre producing after undertaking a six-month residency with Theatre503 as Resident Assistant Producer during one of their most successful seasons to date. Assistant Producing credits for Theatre503 include Clickbait, Four Play, BU21, We Wait In Joyful Hope and Screwed. Producing credits include The State We’re In (Theatre503).
As a freelance theatre producer, Associate Producer credits include Theatre N16's Your Ever Loving (Theatre N16), Stephen Laughton's Screens (Theatre503) and Michael McLean's Years of Sunlight (Theatre503) for Seared Productions. In 2016 I also had the pleasure to work alongside David Rosenberg, Block9 and the Roundhouse as a Theatrical Production coordinator at Glastonbury festival, managing a live performance installation.
I am an Associate Producer for Small Truth Theatre, where most recently I produced On The Line at the Merge Festival 2016. We're also currently working on the premiere of Katy Warner's new play Nest, which has been shortlisted for the Theatre503 Playwriting award and Live Theatre's Live Lab Bursary 2017. https://www.smalltruththeatre.com
