Nathan Powell

Director and Writer

ABOUT


Welcome! Thank you for taking the time to visit, I hope you enjoy having a peek at what I do and what I have done in the past.

I am a Director and Writer, making new work that invites people into the theatre with open arms and a smile. I try to make work that feels accessible to people that are not regular theatre goers, whilst giving regular theatre goers an exciting night of something new!

A large part of my work is creating with young people. I am an advocate for the benefits of engaging with the arts and a champion of young people's work.

I was raised in London, studied in Leeds and live in Liverpool (I only do cities with L's) but work across the country.

Follow me to keep up with what I'm up to....if that's of any interest to you I suppose!
