Sofia Gallucci

MA Drama Directing Student


Sofia is a director from the Midlands and is passionate about telling and making small and intimate stories feel huge and epic. She graduated from the University of Exeter in 2021 with a first class degree in English Literature and Drama and enjoys making a variety of work, from new writing to musical theatre. Sofia takes an interdisciplinary approach, incorporating aspects of movement, music and technology.

Sofia is partially deaf and is incredibly committed to making her work and process as accessible as possible. Sofia also works as a playwright and has been a member of the National Theatre Writers’ Group, the Exeter Northcott Artists Residency and the Papatango Prize Write West Programme. Directing credits include Stockholm (BOVTS, Wardrobe Theatre) and Curtains (FourFig Theatre), Pride & Prejudice (BOVTS), Eton Mess (Exeter Northcott) and Romeo and Juliet (Poltimore House).

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
