“I’m absolutely over the moon to be an Amplify Creative Associate! Thank you to everyone at the Nottingham Playhouse. It’s an honour to be included in such good company and have the support of one of the best regional theatres in the UK. I’m really excited to be making work in my home city and also to be able to give back to the region and support other artists in the building.”
