Kaitlin first dabbled with directing when she was studying English Literature at Hull University. As a member of the Drama Society she produced two shows – Our Country’s Good and the society’s first Panto, Dick Whittington. She enjoyed the process incredibly and the shows were very well received.

Since then she has concentrated on other aspects of her career, but as a Fight Director there is a very large part of her work which focuses on working closely and collaboratively with actors on the direction of intention, meaning and the visualisation of both the action and the text.

Having a great love of Shakespeare, in 2019 Kaitlin was invited to direct a production of Much Ado About Nothing at The Cambridge Shakespeare Festival, which was a great success and hailed as one of the best productions the festival had ever produced. Then in 2020 she was asked to direct two pieces by Her Productions’ for their Unseemly Women project which focused on working with female identifying performers to produce out of context, gender fluid Shakespearian monologues in video form during the first COVID-19 lockdown.

This has lit a bit of a spark and Kaitlin has discovered a love of working as a director to add to her other talents. 2021 saw her complete work on the edit of a filmed project which she produced in collaboration with the original cast of her 2019 Much Ado About Nothing and it was live streamed on the online theatre platform At Yours in June 2021.

Now she eagerly looks forward to any and all new directing opportunities.
