This is an exclusive opportunity for you to meet with, and gain advice from, a renowned Olivier-Award winning theatre director! Matthew has mentored lots of different individuals throughout his career and has always enjoyed it. Whenever he's run venues he's always adopted a proactive and creative approach to the career development of his staff. He's run so many workshops he knows what kind of frameworks are useful for different people at different stages of their career.
So if you're interested in working in the theatre - whether that's in directing, acting, producing, play-writing or theatre design - Matthew will be able to provide incredible insight, knowledge, and guidance to get you to where you want to be.
I’ve been a theatre director since my late 20’s. I’ve also been Artistic Director and CEO of different venues, Including the Royal Exchange theatre in Manchester and the Actors Centre in Covent Garden
I’m a freelance theatre director, currently directing the hit play ‘How to Date a Feminist’. I also run an MA course in Theatre Directing at E15 Acting School.
I don’t even perceive it as work because it’s so fulfilling. I feel very fortunate to be in this position as I know how difficult it is to financially be successful in this industry.
My latest play has had fantastic reviews from numerous publications including the Evening Standard, The Times, The Stage and What’s on Stage.
