Hello I’m Abbey (she/they). I’m a recent MA Theatre-Making graduate from the University of York. I developed an interest in theatre during my undergraduate degree (BA Criminology) and in the space of two years took production roles on 21 shows with the University of York Drama Society. Notably, producing Do You Ever Get Scared? by Minna Davis at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2019 and Co-Directing a production of David Harrowers’ Blackbird. I am interested in working with new writing and queer theatre.
