About my work

I am interested in the power of the word and all of the emotions that it can invoke. In theatre I like to see clean, simple lines. I try to acheive simple beautiful staging that grasps the viewers imagination and draws them into another world. I like the audience to focus on the nuances of a text and the beauty of an actor speaking well written text. I am interested in Science Fiction and the moral questions and issues that can raised and dealt with through this genre. I want to see more science fiction on stage I am currently developing a stage adaptation of 'At the mountains of madness' by H.P. Lovecraft.
