WRITER & DIRECTOR
Nina is a second year Philosophy and Theology student at Oriel, who has been involved in theatre since she exploded onto the scene as Miss Hannigan in ‘Annie’ (2011), a performance which generated some genuine concerns for her sobriety. After a string of rejections, Nina took the hint, and became involved in technical theatre at school. Over the years she developed her role in her school’s drama department, often managing the technical aspects of multiple productions, most often as a stage manager, lighting and sound designer. Being the only non-actor in her drama class meant Nina directed a number of devised and scripted student pieces also. She eventually wrote and directed some of her own productions, most significantly ‘Toast’, which she never really stops talking about. In Oxford drama, Nina has alternated between acting as a director and a lighting designer on various productions. She is very keen to get involved in more shows, to continue learning and developing as a director in the future.
