What's the greatest lesson you've learnt working in theatre?

The greatest thing I learnt was that nothing is out of the realm of possibility. Imagination is the greatest tool a designer has when creating an atmosphere in a performance.

What first sparked your love of theatre or performing arts?

It started when I was quite young, my Nan and Grandad would take me to see shows as a reward for doing well in school. Favourite career memory was working during Panto season – the overall camaraderie backstage made the experience so fun and light-hearted even with the intense three shows each day!

What qualities should a 'great performance space' have?

Immersion. The space should make audiences feel relaxed enough to lose immediate awareness around them and focus in on the show at hand.
