Director Alexandra Spencer-Jones of Action to the Word made her name with her all-male production A Clockwork Orange, currently touring with Glynis Henderson Productions. Features Editor James T Harding met her to discuss Clockwork and her new adaptation of Dracula, which is currently making its Fringe debut at the Pleasance.
It sometimes takes me by surprise that people have such a sexual response to what we do. [...] If people like watching men being bitten, that's their own prerogative.
Topics covered include how Alexandra thinks about sex on stage, Clockwork’s journey from the London Fringe to an international tour, working under the shadow of a big hit, and what it means to be a director of big-budget theatre.
