Andy Routledge

Director Northamptonshire

Andy Routledge (He/Him)

I work as a director, dramaturg and outside eye. I’m interested in projects that explore complex social subjects in dynamic and innovative ways, enabling a collaborative space for artists to create bold work whilst offering a good night out for audiences old and new. My main areas of interest are new writing, devised work and storytelling.
