New Writing

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

Stephen Adly Guirgis

Since Julia began directing, she’s had the great opportunity to work closely with a number of very talented writers, in many cases on their debut plays – including Mari Lloyd’s STILL HERE, Louise Buchler’s Remembering You like something I’d Forgotten, Laura Stevens’ Thin Toes and Steven Hevey’s In My Name – in each instance, working closely with them as both a director and a dramaturg on the development of their scripts towards production.

Julia has 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, present a new piece of work as a rehearsed reading, or direct a script-in-hand performance for a showcase, she has been able to assist in the development of some outstanding new writing for theatre, television, and short film.
