Will Maynard

Director London

He/him.

I'm a director, dramaturg and former teacher. In 2018 I set up Weighed In Productions to make theatre that excites me. I love work that interrogates the structures binding us together: stories that offer explanations for the way the world is now whilst giving hope for a better tomorrow.
