Profile

More

I am a graduate from LAMDA’s Post Graduate Director’s course. Before starting at LAMDA I earned a Joint Honours BA in English Literature & Film at Sussex, and founded my own theatre company, Fight and Hope, in 2012. Since graduating I have worked consistently across a diverse range of projects, from large scale immersive experiences to intimate short plays.

My most recent work includes new short plays for the Southwark Playhouse, Arcola and St James Theatre Studio, written by established writers such as Hassan Abdulrazzak, and emerging artists including Camilla Whitehill and Tristan Bernays. For my final piece at LAMDA I directed the UK premiere of BOOM, by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb.

Other recent work includes being the assistant director on Les Enfants Terribles’ Olivier Nominated ALICE’S ADVENTURES UNDERGROUND, an immersive performance of Alice in Wonderland in The Vaults underneath Waterloo station. Les Enfants Terribles have since hired me to direct a number of their corporate events. I also worked as assistant director on Sell A Door’s national tour of JEKYLL AND HYDE, a new adaptation of the novel by internationally renowned playwright Jo Clifford.

Last year I was fortunate enough to be selected for the Old Vic 12 director’s longlist. Later this year I will be traveling to New York to direct a new adaptation of the Swedish play THE ENCHANTMENT with acclaimed classical theatre company, Ducdame Ensemble.
