MA Drama Directing Student


Phoebe Kemp is an emerging director based in Bristol.  As a disabled queer director Phoebe is interested in work that tells untold stories, sensory theatre (aimed at those who may not be able to access mainstream theatre) and reinterpreting classic works for a modern audience.

During their Masters at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School they assistant directed A Midsummer Night’s Dream (dir. Paul Chesterton), directed Dorian (wri. Phoebe Éclair-Powell and Owen Horsely) and Wish you Were Here (wri. Hannah Hewer).

One of my favourite parts about BOVTS is that it feels ‘homegrown’. From the set to the costume, lighting, acting and sound, every single aspect of a theatre production or film is down to the students. The location of Clifton is so serene and the School being so small everyone knows each other and it feels so personal and special. Violet Morris, BA Professional Acting Student
