Directing is really exciting, picking apart a text and working with a cast or solo performer to discover and develop every nuance and beat. It's one of my favourite things to do and done right it will capture the audience as if it is a different show each time. I love working with new writing because it stands and falls on its own merit, no one is comparing it to the book, how they were taught it at school, or the film version...
If you are interested in working with a director on your live performance, whether theatre or comedy, please get in touch.

An unusual and thought-provoking production.

A well-written and confidently produced play, with a well-structured and paced narrative, imbued with a sense of authenticity that only lived experience can bring.
RB (on audience feedback page) ★★★★★
"Not just great subject matter but treated with sensitivity, power, humour and made accessible to the audience. Cleverly written, accomplished performances and very thoughfully put together. I defy anyone to regret going to see this."
Character - Katalyst Productions
"Sitting on the front row, I felt almost like I was in the living room of Michelle's home and a part of her world. It's a classic sign that director Rachel Creeger has had a hand in this, she always tries to make the audience feel fully immersed in the action"
