Lisa Goldman is Artistic Director of Soho Theatre, London. For the last 10 years she ran her own company the Red Room. Her recent work includes writing and directing Hoxton Story (site specific); directing Bites (The Bush); Animal (Soho theatre and national tour) and The Bogus Woman (Bush, Traverse, national and international tour ; BBC Radio 3 Sunday play – Scotsman Fringe First Award, Manchester Evening News Best Actress); Hanging (BBC Radio 4 Friday play) all by Kay Adshead; Playing Fields by Neela Dolezalova (Soho Theatre); directing short films My Sky is Big (NFT1) and Snakepark (First Light project); curating Going Public (a performed debate at the Tricycle); setting up Artists Against the War in 2001; producing Stitching (Traverse & Bush, national & international tour, Time Out Live Award – best off-West End Production 2003) and The Censor (Royal Court Duke of York’s Time Out Award best fringe production1997) both by Anthony Neilson.

In 2005 she wrote and directed a groundbreaking walkabout performance, Hoxton Story, which The Guardian described as ‘the bastard child of fashionable verbatim theatre and today’s many life-is-shit council estate plays. It has absolutely no manners, and is all the better for it… in weaving stories, it reveals truths… the divisions between art and life blur, in a show that is rooted in the community and probes the very nature of community itself.’
