    About me

    I am a theatre director, facilitator and coach.

    I make theatre that puts women centre stage and theatre for children and families.

    I founded Stand Fast Theatre, a company dedicated to redressing gender imbalance, in 2016.

    I teach, mentor and coach actors and directors. I am a life-coach working with individuals to live their life purpose and reach their potential.

    Katie directed the current UK & International Tour of 'War Horse. Recently Associate Director on 'Long Day’s Journey into Night' for Bristol Old Vic in the West End and an American Tour for Richard Eyre. Her theatre company Stand Fast Theatre launched in 2016 and is developing its first commission 'Motherland', a new play by Silva Semerciyan.

    Katie regularly mentors, directs and teaches acting and directing students at Mountview, the Orange Tree Theatre and St Marys University.
