Director talks

Greg Doran

We offer talks with members of each production's creative team. These pre-show, onstage events offer a chance to hear the director and/or writer  in conversation, revealing some of the influences and decisions that have created the production.

From rehearsal room processes and design choices, to characterisation and relationships this is a fascinating insight into the creative process.
