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.’

The training provided by the MFA programme is superb. The depth with which we explore, paired with unyielding curiosity that is met with the most knowledgeable, passionate, expert tutors is what makes BOVTS programme one of the finest around. I feel honoured to call BOVTS my grad school. Rachel McVay, MA Professional Acting Student
