William Jackson

Mentor: Alan Davey, Controller BBC Radio 3


After graduating I really want to keep creating theatre, whether this is on a fringe or commercial scale and would love advice on where to go next after graduation; either through assistant director placements or creating my own theatre company. I’m unsure on how to pursue these avenues after graduation and make further contacts that’ll help me with these. I also would love to figure out whether it would be best to move to London and base myself there or stay in Birmingham and pursue a more regional theatre work and the ALMP scheme will help me acquire all these aims.
