As a professional Director, Playwright, Dramaturg, Performer, Artist and Consultant my work spans many disciplines and all age groups. I teach as I have always learnt, through curiosity, experimentation and play.
I started out as a professional actor (training at Rose Bruford College) and have diversified over the years, studying for an MA in directing when I realized I preferred the big picture and then writing my own plays when the stories either weren’t there or there weren’t enough meaty parts.
I was commissioned by Radio 4 to write for their afternoon play slot and toured the north of England ending at Soho Theatre with my autobiographical play Punching The Sky. My latest play, Down To Zero directed by Matt Jamie, played at the award-winning Alphabetti Theatre and won several awards including the Best North East Fringe Award and was shortlisted for Best New Play in the British Theatre Guide Best of North East Theatre 2019.
“The knowledge and skills I have gained from working alongside Lizi are immeasurable. From one-to-one audition coaching to creative script-writing, Lizi’s experience, support and expertise were fundamental in my journey towards drama school and ultimately a professional career as an actor.”
GRACE DEAN: PROFESSIONAL ACTOR.
Lizi made you feel like anything you did or any idea you had was brilliant, valid and interesting. And she also knew when she could push you that little bit further to something you didn’t realise you were capable of. Hers is still one of the opinions I value the most.
