Administration Placement

Jessica is an English Literature student at the University of Leeds, currently exploring the theatre industry as part of a placement year away from university.

In addition to her time at Paines Plough, Jessica has worked for Playbox Theatre Company (Warwick), during which she ran her own writing workshop encouraging the young members to get into playwriting. She also enjoyed assisting on many weekly workshops across Playbox's Midlands centres.  After leaving Paines Plough, Jessica will join Fuel Theatre as their Producing Intern before heading back to Leeds in September to complete her degree.

Jessica is also a keen playwright and hopes to develop this craft while learning more about producing theatre companies.
