Hi, I'm Georgie
I am a freelance theatre director, dramaturg and teacher. I enjoy collaborating with writers from early stages in the development of new writing. I'm passionate about making work with young people and am especially interested in working with live music, sound and other digital disciplines.
I initially studied Philosophy and Theology and trained at Mountview (MA Theatre Directing). I am Creative Associate at The Watermill Theatre and Theatre Directing Associate at Mountview.
I've led youth and outreach programmes at The Watermill, Chichester Festival Theatre and Corn Exchange, and worked as a guest director at drama schools including Mountview, Royal Academy of Music and Oxford School of Drama.
