Joseph O'Malley - Rehearsal Room


Joseph O'Malley - Rehearsal Room

Having been involved in the world of professional theatre since the age of 15, Joseph worked with a number of leading organisations such as the National Youth Theatre, National Theatre, Watermill and the Royal Shakespeare Company before striking out on his own as a director.
With a company-led, ensemble focus to his work, Joseph is  frequently seen directing fast-paced, highly physical storytelling, whether that be classic adaptations or brand new work. It is theatre that elicits strong emotions, be that laughter, sadness, or sometimes even terror!


“Joseph's fabulous work as a director is informed by the clarity and joy of his story-telling. His exuberant productions are fresh, fun and frolicsome while being faithful to the script and to the cause of delighting the audience. He's bursting with exhilarating ideas and I hope to join him on one of his exciting journeys in the future.”

- Simon Reade, writer, director and former Artistic Director of Bristol Old Vic Theatre

"Joseph is one of our most frequent collaborators at the Barn. There is a playful vibrancy to his work that is both refreshing and infectious, and his shows remain consistently popular with our audience. It's been a pleasure to work closely with him on a number of projects over the last few years and I look forward to many more in the future. An exciting talent."
