The John Fernald Award enabled me to work with the company Paines Plough which has been a vital relationship in my development as a director. I was and still am supported and inspired by Paines Plough to make theatre. The John Fernald Award was the catalyst for me to work with this company and learn the craft through assisting James Grieve on WASTED by Kate Tempest, creating new important relationships with playwrights I now collaborate with.
