Emily Reid

Artistic Director & Founder


Emily is a theatre-maker and director, committed to devising quality theatre and creative learning projects which nurture a sense of curiosity, wonder and care for our natural world. She is particularly interested in the potential of theatre to motivate social and environmental change, the place of the arts and creativity within the school curriculum, and sustainable theatre making.

She trained at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland gaining a BA in Contemporary Theatre Practice and worked as a devisor, performer, science communicator and drama facilitator in various settings across Scotland and Europe before founding Eco Drama in 2007.

As well as leading the company, Emily regularly works with other organisations presenting on Eco Drama’s work and delivering training, most recently for the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and Youth Theatre Arts Scotland.
