We are a team of people whose joint mission it is to
create change in the world of performance.
Fourth Monkey is very much a family. Our dedicated staff work closely with some of the UK’s finest drama practitioners, students and theatre-makers, to create a truly unique working environment where individual creative expression is valued and nurtured.
The organisation is led by our CEO, Executive and Artistic Director, Steve Green. As well as taking overall responsibility for the strategic direction, financial management and governance of the organisation, Steve also directs the Fourth Monkey Ensemble.
The training department is led by the Director of Training and Deputy CEO, Charleen Qwaye. This team delivers four full-time courses, at undergraduate, postgraduate and foundation level, as well as a programme of short courses.
