From London to Broadway and Back
Judith will talk about her years as producer for one of the world’s most renowned touring theatre companies and explain how a small piece of work that starts in the subsidised sector can end up on Broadway. She’ll also talk about leaving a secure job in her 50s to start her own theatre production company and produce work that she feels particularly relevant, especially nurturing the next generation of theatre makers.
