Take 5 - Conversations with Creatives

TAKE 5 is an ongoing series of filmed conversations with creatives involved in New Theatre productions.

First up, we chat with two female directors, Louise Fischer (New Theatre’s Artistic Director) and Margaret Thanos.

New Theatre has a fine history of nurturing directors and in particular female directors, especially in a time when women directors were rare. The first production directed by a woman was in 1932. Looking back over our history for just the past 25 years, women directors significantly outnumber male directors in New Theatre productions.
