Deborah Newbold

Fuse Playwrights Director Newbold

Debs Newbold is an award winning theatre maker and actor and writer who makes fresh, playful work with the spoken word at its heart. One of the UK’s leading performance storytellers, Debs has worked for prestigious venues such as the Royal Opera House, the Southbank Centre and Shakespeare’s Globe.

Debs consistently seeks ways to bridge the divide between performer and audience. Her genre-defying work with renowned director John Wright (Told by an Idiot) has re-defined contemporary storytelling resulting in two acclaimed shows, Under Her Skin & Lost In Blue. Her one-woman adaptations of Shakespeare’s tragedies have toured internationally.

Debs is Storytelling Consultant for Shakespeare’s Globe and has recently directed actors in a season of Shakespeare-inspired solo performances for children.
