Directing

Rachael has worked with a range of companies and artists as a Director and Assistant Director.

Highlights include Assistant Director/Dramaturg on two of Mortal Fools’ Young People Theatre Exchange projects and Co-Director on Out There; a one-off outdoor theatre production set against the backdrop of the lush Northumberland countryside which was a finalist for Best Event: Northumberland at the Culture Awards 2019.

Rachael has also worked in audio and was Assistant Director on From the Ashes – a satirical drama, set in the fictitious town of Stonebridge which has been labelled the worst town in Britain and tells of what happens when its residents and politicians are plunged into crisis.

Working with Curious Monkey Theatre Company and writer Gez Casey, a group of residents from South East Northumberland aged 9-70 wrote, performed and recorded the radio drama which is available to listen to here.

Most recently, Rachael has worked as Assistant Director to Sally Cookson on The Three Seagulls (Bristol Old Vic), a partly-devised version of The Seagull based on three different adaptations of the text.
