Lydia McKinley

MA Drama Directing Student


Lydia McKinley is a theatre director and dramaturg who works mainly in the development of new-writing.  She is currently finishing an MA in Drama Directing at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, and is based between the South West and London.

Her work tends to centre around the female experience, the politics of gender and the climate crisis.

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
