Elizabeth is the Artistic Director of Pentabus Theatre Company www.pentabus.co.uk.
Her recent bold and innovative production of The Rape of Lucrece for the RSC received wonderful reviews and continues to tour internationally.
“It’s a triumph, strange and gripping and honest.” The Times
“There is something thrilling about seeing the RSC grappling to find a new form for Shakespeare …. Director Elizabeth Freestone rightly opts for a simplicity of staging: a shadow looms out of the darkness; a patch of light suggest a bedroom door ajar with possibilities.” The Guardian
She trained at the National Theatre Studio and Rose Bruford College from where she has a BA Hons in Directing (First Class).
