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).

I absolutely love working backstage. It was something I had never done before arriving at BOVTS and I'm so grateful for the opportunity. Madi Barncoat, BA Costume Student
