Erica Whyman

Deputy Artistic Director at the RSC


Erica is currently Deputy Artistic Director at the RSC.


Reflecting on her time at BOVTS she says, ‘My time at BOVTS was genuinely formative and very happy.  I learnt the practical craft of directing but I learnt so much more, about actors and acting, design and stage management, but perhaps most importantly that great theatre is always a collaborative art, requiring respect for every member of the team.’

Students developing and growing in confidence during their time here, seeing their work reaching professional standards in approach and execution; a student who intends to be a stage manager producing a wonderful sound design; a first year student making a lovely recording of a song for their recording project; tracking the careers of former students and seeing them be successful; being able to find a job opportunity for a recent graduate.
