What keeps theatre alive? We do. Playwrights, directors, actors – anyone who has a love for theatre; who’s inspired by it and wants to inspire others through it. Theatre helps us develop as individuals and educates us. The art of directing and telling a story, is vital for every theatre production. Seeing a director’s interpretation of a story is an inspiring thing to witness, and we want to celebrate that. We want to celebrate our directors. We want to celebrate theatre. In our new blog series ‘Director’s Profile’ we share the beautiful stories of directors, who have inspired or been inspired in one way or another.
