Katie Mitchell


Katie Mitchell OBE is a theatre director who divides contemporary opinion from high praise to condemnation for her arrogant self-obsession, and is described by some as gentle and empathetic while others think her humourless and high-minded. One reviewer has criticised her for ‘smashing up the classics’ and another for ‘putting herself above the text.’

Equally at home directing opera (such as Jephtha) as she is experimental theatre, Mitchell has become a powerful voice of new direction performance which nonetheless absorbs much from the past, including shows such as Waves, The City, Written on Skin, Forbidden Zone and Some Trace of Her. She has also produced acclaimed young people’s theatre: The Cat in the Hat, Beauty and the Beast, Hansel and Gretel and The Way Back Home, an opera for children."
