About: Damsel Develops: Damsel Green

Damsel Develops is a new festival committed to helping emerging female directors develop work, with the hope of moving towards a future production.

Sara Joyce directs a rehearsed reading of Marina Carr’s On Rafferty’s Hill. Premiering at the Royal Court in 2000, On Rafferty’s Hill is a story about three generations of the Rafferty family who live on a farm in a small, rural Irish community. They have shaped their lives around the landscape. Sorrell, the youngest of the family, will either escape a destiny that has burdened the Rafferty women, or realise the truth of the rumours that suffocate them.

Sara recently directed Dust by Milly Thomas and Elsa by Isobel Rogers at Edinburgh Fringe. Both shows will transfer to London in early 2018. Previously she directed The Scar Test by Hannah Khalil (Soho Theatre). Sara was resident director at Almeida Theatre and resident assistant director at Soho Theatre. She has worked with Dominic Dromgoole, Claire van Kampen, Pan Pan Theatre, Rupert Goold, Richard Eyre, and Steve Marmion.


Tania Azevedo will direct excerpts from a new musical The Restorative Artist by Clancy Flynn and with music by Laura Kaye Thompson. The Restorative Artist is a one woman show about working at a funeral home, based on the writer’s personal experience. Abigail Quinn worked on the dead, but her job was for the living. When she prepared a body, she helped the survivors tell a story about a life that was lost. But people are telling stories about her while she’s still alive.

The musical examines how we are only ever a character in other people’s stories and uses a score of spoken word, folk and contemporary musical theatre to explore the themes of death, human bodies and sexual identity.

Tania has recently received an OFFIE award nomination for 'Best Director' for the new musical Paper Hearts (Upstairs At The Gatehouse). Recent directing credits include Tenderly (New Wimbledon Theatre), XY (From Page to Stage at The Other Palace), Paper Heats (Upstairs at the Gatehouse and International Tour), Piece of Silk (The Hope Theatre), Hello Again (Hope Theatre).
