More

I trained at Mountview and the National Theatre Studio, and I'm a former Staff Director at the National Theatre. In 2009 I co-founded Snapdragon Productions with producer Sarah Loader. 

I am currently directing When We Were Women by Sharman Macdonald, running at the Orange Tree Theatre 3rd September - 3rd October 2015. 

As a Director for Snapdragon my productions include Teddy by Tristan Bernays and Dougal Irvine (Southwark Playhouse, 2015), Toast by Richard Bean (Park Theatre, 2014), Thark by Ben Travers (Park Theatre, 2013), two sell-out runs of Generous, the London premiere of The Drawer Boy by Michael Healey, and the first London revival in over 30 years of A Life by Hugh Leonard (all Finborough Theatre).
My international work includes the World Premiere of the musical For All That for Centerstage Theater, Seattle.
Other directing includes The Gypsy Thread (National Theatre Studio), Can I Be Straight With You? (Bush Theatre), The Error of Their Ways (Cockpit Theatre), A Number (Camden People’s Theatre), This Lime Tree Bower (Edinburgh Festival) and staged readings of The Session (Pushkin House), The Promised Land (Tristan Bates), The Geese of Beverly Road (Theatre503) and Photos of You Sleeping (Hampstead Theatre).
I work frequently on the development of new works, including with Paul Herzberg on the London premiere of The Dead Wait and with Rick Bland on Full of Bees (both Park Theatre).
