Directed by Polly Findlay, winner of the JMK Trust's young theatre director award in 2007 and recipient of the 2006/7 Bulldog Princeps Bursary at the National Theatre. Findlay’s credits include Caryl Churchill’s Light Shining in Buckinghamshire (Arcola); Eigengrau (Bush); Thyestes (Arcola) and Romeo and Juliet (Battersea Arts Centre).
