I'm a theatre director working in London. I try to make entertaining political work - whether that's in new plays, revivals or classics. In 2017 I won the JMK Award, directing My Name is Rachel Corrie at the Young Vic.
In June of 2019 I directed Audible's first production in the UK, Radio by Al Smith, at the Arcola Theatre. In February 2019 I directed Orlando by Lucy Roslyn at the VAULT Festival, later taking the production to the Edinburgh Festival where we were spotted by the 59E59 in New York. The production was due to transfer to New York in 2020, until Covid intervened. In 2021 I directed HOME by David Storey in The Minerva, Chichester Festival Theatre.
Past productions include work at Soho Theatre, Finborough Theatre, Theatre 503, Warwick Arts Centre and The New Diorama. For details of other work see 'Projects'.
When starting out I worked for two years as the Soho Theatre Literary Associate (2012 - 2014). I then worked extensively as an Assistant Director, in the West End (Pressure, Farinelli and the King, Death of a Salesman) with Shakespeare's Globe (Doctor Scroggy's War, Eternal Love, Taming of the Shrew) and the RSC (Dr Faustus, The Alchemist). I was also an associate director for Nabokov on Blink, which toured the UK and Off-Broadway.
I'm delighted to be represented by Dan Usztan at United Agents.
