I am passionate about directing urgent new writing that packs a punch.
This passion is underpinned by my experiences and my background informs the work that I am driven to make. I grew up on a council estate in Southampton and was raised by a young single mother with my two sisters. I actively seek out writers who give a voice to working class characters and to women; writers who have a wicked sense of humour (I love to hear the audience laugh, there really is no greater feeling), questions to ask and stories to spin.
I'm interested in ways in which to create theatre that exists outside of the echo chamber as well as plays that embrace diversity both onstage and off.
Ultimately I aim to create bold, surprising and active theatre that provides audiences with a fresh perspective on the world we live in.
