    About me

    Hello! I'm Carly and I'm a designer working across theatre, opera, events, film and TV. I am based in lovely Brighton and Hove. I trained in MA Theatre Design at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. I hold an undergraduate degree in Drama Studies and before training, worked in higher education and commercial design for eight years.

    Recently I was the Set and Costume Designer for North of Providence & Dolores, a site-specific, socially distanced live broadcast of Edward Allan Baker plays for the Bristol Arts Channel, directed by Victor Lirio and was the Set and Projection Designer for The Laramie Project at Bristol Old Vic directed by Nancy Medina.

    My work often takes inspiration from the seemingly mundane and overlooked details of the world. I am excited by working with text, particularly new writing and enjoy creating worlds that intimately connect the audience with the story.

    You may be interested to know that my favourite musical is Caroline, or Change and my design process is aided by Hector, a small and very excitable dachshund.
