When working as a dramaturg I see my role as enabling a writer or company to discover what they want their play to ask its audience, and to enable it to do so truthfully, compellingly and economically. For me, this means a bespoke relationship that is led by your project and your vision for it.
I become involved with projects at all stages, from the kernel of an idea, to plays that have already had a performance and need strengthening ahead of a further run. I am particularly interested in working on projects with a focus on gender, or with voices that we have not traditionally heard on our stages.
