Disability equality leader, Michèle Taylor invites Amy Leach, Deputy Artistic Director at Leeds Playhouse to talk about her work as a director and how her approach has grown as a result of working with disabled and deaf performers.
Amy talks about ‘packing on the muscle’ as a director, goosebumps moments, the team you might expect to find in a Ramps rehearsal room, and her advice to ‘just put it in the brochure’.!
Amy Leach is Deputy Artistic Director at Leeds Playhouse. She directed the Ramps co-production of Oliver Twist in 2020 which she then reworked into a film which can now be found on the National Theatre At Home streaming service.
