Hello, my name is Georgia and I'm a director, writer and theatre maker and I specialise in new writing, comedy, family shows and devised theatre.

My work is fun, silly, comical, imaginative, sometimes tragic, often personal, and always playful. It usually involves some element of clown, be it a full clown show or a spark of playfulness and anarchy within a theatre piece. 
 

I studied Theatre and English at Leeds University and trained at Ecole Philippe Gaulier.

I have collaborated with artists such as CalMcCrystal, Marcello Magni and am an Associate Artist with Spymonkey.
