Rohan Gotobed

Director Dorset

My name is Rohan Gotobed (he/him) and I'm currently the trainee director at the Unicorn Theatre, where I have assisted directors such as Ned Bennett, Polly Findlay, and Ola Ince. I want to make thrilling theatre that highlights social politics - I am obsessed by the personal versus the political. I love history and using stories from the past to highlight contemporary contradictions.
