Josh has been a director for a number of years whose experience and passion is in new writing, political and verbatim theatre. Josh has directed and assisted various political plays including Sochi 2014 with director David Mercatali (Sherman Theatre Associate Director) and Someone to Blame at the Nuffield Theatre in Southampton.
Josh has worked extensively on a variety of new writing projects with writer Paul Hewitt, whilst working on pieces of political and verbatim theatre himself. He is currently working on developing his play The Fuhrer will now speak a verbatim piece of theatre using the words of Holocaust and subsequent genocide survivors. Past performances of this play have been hailed a huge success with The Times calling his work ‘spellbinding’. Josh is currently establishing his own theatre company which will focus on political work being created and staged in abnormal spaces.
Josh is keen to work with new writers, theatre makers and theatre companies from Portsmouth and outside the city in order to use theatre to inform, inspire and educate. He is particularly keen to help establish Portsmouth’s very own fringe festival and sees it as an exciting opportunity to bring communities and the city together.
