Katie graduated with a BA in Drama and Theatre Arts in 2001. She is now the Artistic Director of The Other Way Works, a theatre company that she co-founded in 2001.
How did you get your current job?
“I co-founded my theatre company The Other Way Works with a handful of University of Birmingham graduates in the summer after graduation. I undertook further study in 2002/3 - an MA in Directing for devised theatre at Central School of Speech & Drama, London. Following this I moved back to Birmingham and have lived here ever since, building the theatre company from nothing into a successful small-scale touring operation, presenting experimental theatre performances.
What is the best thing about your job?
Running my own company means that I can make the work that I want to make, in the way that I want to make it. It makes me happy to be able put artistic integrity before profit when coming up with ideas for new performances.”
