… 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. As well as directing the debut plays of Laura Stevens – Thin Toes – Steven Hevey – In My Name – and Louise Buchler – Remembering You like something I’d Forgotten – I worked closely with them on the development of their scripts towards production.
I’ve also had the good fortune to collaborate with other emerging writers, whether it’s to workshop a draft of a new play for an invited audience, or present a new piece of work as a rehearsed reading, or direct 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, television, and short film.
