I am a theatre director based in the South of England. I have an interest in directing a wide-range of theatre and enjoy pushing the spectacle and audience expectations. Collaboration is at the heart of my practice most recently working with movement directors to create strong ensemble focused theatre and sound designers to complement and guide the narrative.
My particular skillset and experience lies in new writing and development of new work, particularly of a political nature, along with verbatim theatre and International playwrighting. I also have extensive experience and an un-ending passion for co-creating theatre with young people.
I lead the Propel Artist Development programme at MAST Mayflower Studios and Mayflower Theatre in Southampton delivering programmes and initiatives that support artists and the development of new work.
As a director I have presented work in various theatres and arts festivals including The Rose Theatre, The Egg, Royal and Derngate, The National Theatre, MAST Mayflower Studios, The Kings Theatre, Taunton Brewhouse Theatre, The Corn Exchange, Newbury, International Youth Arts Festival and Camden Fringe Festival.
“Josh and I have worked together on many productions and last year I had the privilege or having Josh as my director on The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe at The Corn Exchange, Newbury.
Josh is one of the most kind, generous, hardworking people I have ever had the privilege of working with. Josh is a problem solver and super positive, and very trusting. Josh loves to work hard and gets real job satisfaction for that. He works well under pressure and in consistent with that no matter what obstacles are in his path. He will never let you down and will go above and beyond to make people happy. Josh always puts a smile on everyone’s face as well as everyone else on the team. He was always well loved by everyone and has a heart of gold.
Josh was always on time when delivering deadlines and was a friendly face when we arrived on a project no matter how early the call time was. Josh worked so well with the young members of the company and they trusted him. Josh is an imaginative person and very creative so easy to work with. I look forward to working with Josh again.”
