Helen has been directing, performing and producing theatre for 25 years and, as such, has gained extensive experience in a wide variety of performance-related fields. She attended Central School of Speech and Drama and then, following several years spent travelling and living abroad, returned to university as a mature student and graduated from the Lincoln School of Fine and Performing Arts (LSFPA) at the University of Lincoln with an Honours degree in Drama, before completing a Masters degree in Contemporary British Theatre. During her studies, she undertook a number of specialisms including Twentieth Century American Drama, Aspects of Acting, Early Modern Drama, Theatre and Consciousness, Shakespeare and Restoration to Melodrama.
Helen is currently researching a PhD in Theatre Studies at the University of Essex, focusing on the themes of toxic and hyper masculinity and how suicide is represented on the contemporary stage.
