Anna Markland

The first show Anna directed, the comedic Maybe Radio, was just featured as part of KDC’s Spring season.
Anna’s background is in improvised comedy and she will be using improv techniques and a very collaborative approach as part of rehearsals.

Lloyd Smith

This is Lloyd’s first time working with KDC. Previous directing credits include new writing for Wandsworth Arts Festival and The 39 Steps for New Stagers. Recently he produced After The Dance and acted in Earthquakes In London for Sedos.

Saskia van ‘t Hoff

Saskia is a director and stage manager, and has worked with theatre companies in the Netherlands, London, and Sydney.

She was a long-standing member of a theatre company in the Netherlands, writing, producing, and performing plays, before moving to London in 2014. In 2016 Saskia directed her first full-length play for KDC Theatre; THERE HAS POSSIBLY BEEN AN INCIDENT. 

She is stage manager and associate artist for Director’s Cut Theatre Company, directing and stage managing at Leicester Square Theatre, The Pleasance Theatre, The Southwark Playhouse, and St James Theatre.

Lucy Spreckley

Lucy has been getting itchy feet for a while now to have a crack at directing and to be doing her directorial debut with KDC is just the icing on the cake. At the start of April Lucy had finished a run of the devised show ‘Hush Now’ with KDC and is exciting to be involved in another season!

Aneirin George

Aneirin has been working on this theatre lark for many years now and is excited (and grateful) to be taking part in a second KDC Full Stack extravaganza. This year as well as directing/hopefully arranging for comedy to occur on stage. He is taking a new step and learning how to make “that social media thing” say what he wants it to.

Vicky Olusanya

Vicky has been part of the KDC community for several years, producing our Full Stack show for the second time with Carried Away. She has recently directed for the Arcola Queer Collective and looks forward to creating more new writing projects in the near future.
