Hello,
I'm Steven.

I'm an award-winning producer currently working on projects in film, theatre and television.

In 2019 I founded Long Acre Arts, a UK production company dedicated to commissioning exceptional diverse storytellers, and I founded Roots, a national touring theatre company that stages important stories created with neighbourhood ensembles.

I'm a BFI x BAFTA Crew member and UK Theatre member. In 2020 I completed the BFI Creative Producers programme. 
 
After an apprenticeship in script development, in 2007 I co-founded HighTide, one of UK's leading theatre production companies, leading it for twelve joyful years. I commissioned and produced over eighty new plays in theatres including the National Theatre, The Old Vic, Royal Court Theatre, Young Vic, in the West End, and Off-Broadway. I also produced fourteen HighTide festivals in Suffolk and London.

I'm always interested to meet storytellers and explore bringing their ideas to life. So if you have a story, do say hello! hello@longacrearts.com
