About me

Hello! I'm a London-based theatre director and writer.

I am co-Artistic Director of the multi award-winning theatre company Breach, which creates politically engaged shows telling real-life stories. I’ve directed, or co-directed, and co-written all of its productions - which have toured the UK and been published by Oberon Books. We have delivered workshops in documentary and verbatim theatre at schools, universities ant theatres including the National Theatre and the Roundhouse. 

Outside of Breach, I work with solo artists as a director and dramaturg, and I am represented by Independent Talent as a director and writer for stage and TV. I previously worked as a theatre critic for publications including The Scotsman and Exeunt. 

Work with me

I’m always looking to work with new collaborators in new ways, and would love to hear from you if you’re in need of: 

director or workshop facilitator with particular experience in devised, documentary theatre and solo performance.
writer either for or about theatre. 
dramaturg who can combine creative and critical experience to help shape and refine your work.
