Working as a dramaturg is basically like being a consultant for a show. It can be reading a script and giving notes one-on-one with a playwright or it could be working with an entire company in a rehearsal room. Some artists like to work with a dramaturg in the very early stages during R&D whilst others might bring a dramaturg in because they’re stuck or want some feedback.
I was dramaturg for The Wardrobe Ensemble on their Fringe First and Stage Award winning shows Education, Education, Education and The Last of the Pelican Daughters. Most recently I worked with The Sexual Health Circus and Theatre West.
Whether you’re looking for an outside eye in the rehearsal room or a script report and notes session, I can be a supportive and experienced guide to help you tell the story you want to tell.
There’s no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to getting help with your show so the best thing is to drop me a line. I’m happy to consider different budgets and, when I can, I will provide free dramaturgy for up and coming writers without funding from underrepresented groups such as writers from working class backgrounds, BAME writers and writers with disabilities.
