CO DIRECTOR & ACTOR

For Lex's final practical module at University, she co directed and played the role of Tilly in Weldon Rising. The play looks at themes such as sexuality, crime and loss. Lex’s directing technique was greatly challenged by simultaneously directing and performing in Weldon Rising. This has influenced many of her directing choices since, often imagining herself in the role of the actor and considering how her directing choices may inhibit their natural performance inclinations.
