About the Creative Director

Christina, originally from Manchester, finished her Drama A Level in 2004 and then, after working with a professional Theatre In Education group, headed to the North East to study English at Durham University.

Since 2010, she has been busy delivering drama workshops and creative projects with Off The Page Drama. Her passion is helping people to realise their own creativity - starting from scratch and then waiting to see where the imagination leads.

Christina is also an award-winning playwright. Credits include: The Last Word (winner of ‘Plays for Young Performers’ in Trinity College London’s International Playwriting Competition (2012)) and Instructions Not Included, toured by NTC as part of ‘4Scene’ (2013).

When not running projects with Off The Page Drama or writing plays, Christina can be found facilitating youth theatre sessions at Live Theatre and running school workshops with Seven Stories National Centre for Children’s Books.
