… writing stories about a black and white perspective is boring. It’s the grey that’s interesting.

Working with Writers

Since I started directing in 2007, I’ve had the great opportunity to work closely with a number of very talented writers. Whether it’s workshopping a draft of a new play for an invited audience, or presenting a new piece of work as a rehearsed reading, or directing a script-in-hand performance for a writer’s showcase, I’ve been able to assist in the development of some outstanding new writing for theatre, film and TV.

Below you’ll find a selection of the writers I’ve collaborated with as a director on their new work.

Pessoa. My-self. I.

A man waits in a room of a long-dead writer, surrounded by their books and possessions that have been preserved for posterity.
