  • Freelancer: Available

I'm a freelance theatre director based in London and recently finished training at the Orange Tree Theatre in Richmond, where I directed Wasted by Kate Tempest and assisted Chelsea Walker on Low Level Panic by Clare McIntyre.

Most recently I have directed extracts from new plays at scratch nights across London, including Grafting by Kyle Ross at Streatham Space Project, 50 Years by James McDermott at the Old Red Lion and 100% by Kyle Ross at the Southwark Playhouse. I have also directed a 3 day workshop and rehearsed reading of Passing for Normal by Olivia Foan.

I also work as Co-Artistic Director of Entita Theatre, a physical theatre company, for whom I have directed and produced Method in Madness, Fall and co-directed Curtain'd Sleep.

I have a keen interest in the interplay between text, movement & music in performance.
