Drama and Theatre Studies graduate, John Young.

A talented young director, who only graduated from the University of Chester two years ago, is preparing for his next performance at a London Theatre.

John Young, 23, is a former Resident Assistant Director at the Finborough Theatre and will see his current production, We Know Where You Live, return to the venue next month.

John graduated from the University with a first class BA (Hons) Drama and Theatre studies degree in 2013 and since then has made an impressive start to his directing career. He received the Emerging Director Bursary from Clwyd Theatr Cymru and was Resident Director for Chester Microplays, before getting the Resident Assistant Director position at the Finborough Theatre, in Central London where he assisted on Chicken Dust and Our American Cousin.

His other directing credits include: High Windows (Camden Peoples Theatre), Ten, Ten and Ten (Commercial Theatre), Scattered (Clwyd Theatr Cymru Theatre for Young People) Sticky Labels (Paupers Pit and Lantern Theatre) and a staged reading of An Incident at the Border (Clwyd Theatr Cymru). Assistant Direction includes assisting Tim Baker on Skyhawk the Musical (Wales and Ireland Tour).

The cast for his latest production, commissioned by the Finborough Theatre, We know where you live, was announced this week. Originally seen as a staged reading as part of Vibrant -- A Festival of Finborough Playwrights 2013, the world premiere of We Know Where You Live by Steven Hevey,  runs at the Finborough Theatre, playing nine Sunday and Monday evenings from Sunday, August 2 2015 (Press Night: Monday, 3rd August 2015 at 7.30pm).
