Eastern Angles is delighted to announce the appointment of Callum Berridge as Associate Director (Engagement & Participation.)

Callum is a director, practitioner, theatre-maker and dramaturg with a special interest in new writing which explores contemporary working-class identity/ies, social mobility and social justice, particularly in the East Midlands and South Yorkshire, reflective of his own experience growing up. Underpinning his work is a desire to foster a collaborative, co-authored approach to making theatre. He has previously worked with Not Too Tame Theatre Company, Headlong Theatre, New Perspectives and Derby Theatre, and extensively with Sheffield Theatres, and is currently one of its Bank Cohort 2022/23 supported directors.

Speaking about his appointment, Callum said: "I am delighted to have been appointed Associate Director of Eastern Angles. I look forward to helping to shape and develop the ambition and vision of the company, serving communities across the East of England and building on a rich legacy of more than 40 years." 

Eastern Angles Artistic Director / CEO Jake Smith said: "I am delighted Callum is joining the team at Eastern Angles. Callum is clearly an advocate for the positive impact place-based theatre making can have in building cultural legacy and partnerships with a community. I was particularly inspired by Callum's production, The Places In Between: LCN > SHF, a series of audio plays developed about places across the Lincoln to Sheffield train line. I know he will create some really engaging work for the communities and stages of East Anglia."
