Bernie is a multi-award winning playwright, director, dramaturg and fully qualified drama teacher with a PhD in Literary Criticism.  Bernie is also one of the NTR Lab Associates (you can find out more about this from the NTR Creative Lab page http://www.newtheatreroyal.com/creative-lab/). She joined the Creative Learning team in 2015.

Bernie is heading up the new writing projects at NTR and delivering some of the masterclasses, outreach and youth theatre projects (along with an incredible hand-picked team of experts). She’ll be popping up at workshops to accompany productions, post-show discussions and Q&As, creating education packs and online resources and collaborating with the University of Portsmouth to bring you a truly exciting programme of events.

Bernie only hangs out at NTR part of the week because she is still working with other prestigious theatres and companies here and abroad. They’ll be popping up at NTR from time to time as well.
