“Directors like Mel are a gift to performers. She is highly intuitive, collaborative and an excellent communicator. While she is rigorous in her approach to creating authenticity of character and motivation, and uncompromising in her quest for truth in performance, her style is approachable, inclusive and considered. She brings great energy, intelligence and playfulness to the rehearsal room while being attentive to the needs of everyone in the team.” 

Judith Dodsworth, Stubble, 2018
