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).

Students developing and growing in confidence during their time here, seeing their work reaching professional standards in approach and execution; a student who intends to be a stage manager producing a wonderful sound design; a first year student making a lovely recording of a song for their recording project; tracking the careers of former students and seeing them be successful; being able to find a job opportunity for a recent graduate.
