With a passion for authentic and honest storytelling, Jess is fascinated with body language and the nuance of non-verbal communication. Her interest in theatre extends from a desire to expose the inner workings of the human psyche – revealing the instinctual, the carnal, the flawed vulnerability. An avid people watcher, she often finds inspiration in her own anxieties and observations.
As co-founder of Fight or Flight Productions, Jess is an Associate Artist of The Lion and Unicorn Theatre. She is also currently Associate Director for Proforça Theatre Company, has directed several shorts for Falling Pennies, and has worked regularly with The Space as part of their new writing festivals - including OnComm commended LOVE/RUIN as part of their online season 'Locked Down Looking Up'.
She has created work for numerous spaces and companies including The Space, The Lion and Unicorn, Brighton Fringe, Marlborough Theatre, The Theatre Royal (Brighton), The Arcola Theatre, The Union Theatre, Etcetera Theatre, & Stockwell Playhouse.
