I’m Will, a Birmingham-based writer, director and performer. I primarily work in the West Midlands and London. I’m the Artistic Director of Quick Duck Theatre, an award-winning Birmingham based theatre company, which was one of New Diorama Theatre's Emerging Theatre Companies of 2019/20.
I'm an Associate Artist of the National Youth Theatre of Great Britain and one of BBC Arts & Rural Media's New Creatives. I’ve worked as a Facilitator and Staff Director for organisations including the Birmingham REP, English Touring Opera, National Youth Theatre & Refugee Charity The Helen Bamber Foundation. I was also selected as one of Bush Theatre's six emerging writers of 2019/20.
I trained on the University of Birmingham’s Drama & Theatre arts course, the Birmingham REP Foundry Programme and studied clowning at L’École Phillipe Gaulier.
