Having recently stepped down as Executive Producer of the Donmar Warehouse in London, where she produced 40 productions. She also produced Phyllida Lloyd’s ground-breaking, all-female Shakespeare Trilogy for stage and screen. These productions were developed and performed in prisons and schools, and transferred to St Ann’s Warehouse in New York.
