Writer, director and theatre maker based in the South East of England. Passionate about new writing, devised work and collaborations between art-forms. All about the audience experience. 

I am Artistic Director of Witness Theatre which I run with designer Kelli Des Jarlais. We make powerful, provocative work that engages in a dialogue with the world around it. We want to entertain audiences, but also make them think, question and explore. Interested in creating work in, and for, non-theatre spaces.
