Amy Crighton

Director Warwickshire

I am a freelance theatre director and maker from Warwickshire and an alumnus of the University of Nottingham and Nottingham New Theatre. I am interested in a range of work and always aim to create performances that are completely vivid in the emotions they represent. I am particularly engaged by interrogating dialogues of power onstage and stories that explore the female experience. I am committed to working collaboratively and have an enthusiasm for local outreach and engagement with rural communities.
