As part of the Regional Theatre Young Director Scheme, Leeds Playhouse is set to welcome Sameena Hussain for a paid 18-month residency with the opportunity to direct a production as part of the theatre’s programme.
“Sameena Hussain is an inspiring artist, whose passion and commitment shone
through brightly,” explains Leeds Playhouse Artistic Director, James Brining.
“The team and I are looking forward to working with her and seeing how she grows as an artist and a cultural leader as well as being moved forward as an organisation by her ideas and energy.”
The 18-month residency also covers all the elements of the theatre’s day-to-day-running; finance, development, producing, administration, marketing and publicity are all part of the training.
Artistic Director of RTYDS Sue Emmas: “We create pathways that affect who can lead in theatre; if you change the directors, you change the work that gets made, the actors they work with and the stories they tell. We believe it’s hugely important to see everyone
represented in theatre and at every level and in every area.”
