PHILIP
FRANKS (Director)

Philip is an award-winning director. He is equally at home working with star names as he is with drama students; in 1000-seat theatres such as the NT or Chichester, as in intimate studios like the Bush; with casts of over thirty or one/two-handers; and his work is characterised by a respect for texts, a love and understanding for actors, a warmth and humanity combined with visual flair.

Philip was Associate Director at Chichester Festival Theatre from 2007-2012.
