Rich is proud to have worked and collaborated as an Associate and Assistant Director for and with some of the most innovative and progressive theatre makers and companies in the UK.


Below is a selection of images from productions on which Rich has been a core creative team member through a variety of roles: writing, directing, co-choreographing, co-designing, dramaturgy, puppetry and movement direction. Being versatile and multi-faceted is key to Rich's approach as a theatre-maker, where the ensemble cohesion and connection is paramount both on and off stage. 


Rich has always found joy in collaborating with creative teams that are ambitious with the stories they seek to tell and brave theatrical choices they make; building sensory and immersive worlds on both an epic and intimate scale. 


Rich is currently co-creating A LITTLE SPACE, an exciting collaboration between Gecko and Mind The Gap.


Other upcoming projects in 2020 include a new musical, working with a drama school on an immersive show, a cross schools project, collaboration with a museum for Cambridge International Arts Festival, two new Shakespeare adaptations and opening a new international touring production in Shanghai.


Rich is always on the look out for new daring and interesting artistic adventures, whatever the scale.
