Welcome

Welcome to my website, I hope that you find it interesting and that it contains information that is useful to you.

I’ve been a Theatre Director specialising in Youth Theatre for 10 years in a mid-scale producing theatre. Here I’ve directed extensively for studio, main-stage and site-specific locations.

I run my own youth theatre company, Unlimited Theatre, work as drama teacher in schools and as a freelance theatre practitioner in other community settings.sarah

I am really interested in visual and physical theatre. Telling a story or sharing themes with imaginative and exciting metaphors. I like to take risks and develop new, exciting ways to bring text and devised work to life.

Some of the companies who inspire my work are Jasmine Vardimon, DV8, Kneehigh, Frantic Assembly, Paper Birds and Gecko.

I am particularly excited when working alongside young people; giving them an understanding and knowledge of the theatre so that they can develop their own voice.

I’ve been exceptionally lucky that I’ve had wonderful colleagues with which to work. If we’ve made exciting and thought- provoking productions then it’s because of the contributions of the team.

I am first and foremost a theatre director who seems to create work to professional standards and outcomes without often having professional actors to work with. I especially enjoy working with a creative team at the beginning of their professional careers and developing new and emerging talent. However I have also been a workshop facilitator, project leader and teacher in a wide variety of situations.
