My ideal job is bringing a company of actors together to create Shakespeare and our other work in a unique way: kinetic and through a “contemporary lens”. I also am thrilled about all sorts of tragedy; the darker and deeper the better. Taking the audience on an emotional journey that weaves together with the best dialogue we can find.
As well as a host of tour booking and producing experience Georgina was also a co-founder of the Relaxed Theatre Company - @relaxedtheatrecompany a company devoted to creating accessible theatre for all, both in creative process and spectator experience.
