    About me

    I am highly creative, down to earth, energetic and resourceful director. I enjoy working with actors and writers to create exciting productions. My career has been mainly filled with New Writing and contemporary plays. I would like to work with companies/writers that seek to make interesting and emotive theatre, be it with new plays or bringing life to classics.

    I work with a blend of text, physical and character work to bring a piece of theatre to life. Collaboration is essential to theatre work with the actors and creatives.

    Adam Morley Director

    Erica is a hard working, enthusiastic and very creative individual who would be a great asset to any production. She is bold and brave in the decision and creative processes and a strong leader with clear ideas and drive. A pleasure to work with.
