Sophie is the Course Leader for the BA Performance for Stage and Screen, on which she teaches across a range of modules designed to develop performance practice, research and study skills. Broadly speaking, her research and teaching interests lie in the history, practice and politics of contemporary British Theatre. To date, her focus has been on the careers of female playwrights from the late 1970s to the present day, specifically Timberlake Wertenbaker and Charlotte Keatley. She maintains an involvement with practical theatre-making, as a director and deviser.
