After training as an actress, Lil moved to the behind-the-scenes roles of theatre as a production runner and working her way to the role of General Manager for Sonia Friedman Productions. In 2020 she became the Managing Director and Executive Producer of Anthology Theatre, as the company changed from being an investing company to a production company. Anthology Theatre’s latest production is Samuel Beckett’s Happy Days, directed by Trevor Nunn at the Riverside Studios.
Lil was able to give our graduating actors an insight into the relationship between producer and actor and informing them of technicalities such as contracts. She also offered valuable advice about the importance of ownership and creating your own opportunities.
Lil ended the talk on an optimistic note, discussing her thoughts about the future of the theatre industry as more diverse and expanding into the new world of captured theatre.
We are looking forward to seeing Lil again at our graduate productions at The Playground Theatre as well as at The Riverside Studios to see Happy Days.
