About me

"Avoid the obvious and strive towards the impossible."

Associate Director at Omnibus, Clapham

Director on The Birmingham Rep Foundry programme 2013-2014

I trained as an actor at The Arts Educational Schools, Chiswick. Since graduating I appeared in productions at various theatres inlcuding The Marlowe, The Arcola, Southwark Playhouse and The Kings Head.

In the last five years I have begun to focus solely on directing. My training as an actor has equip me with skills that enable me to successfully communicate what I require from a concept or a role and therefore achieve positive outcomes. I am fiercely passionate and positive about theatre and this is
reflected in my work and the actors I work with.


Reviews-

Flight at Jack Studio Theatre-
Everything Theatre - 20th Jan 2014 - 4 ****

What's Peen Seen - 20th Jan 2014 - 4 ****

The whole show had a searing intensity...slick pacing...this show was brilliant.

UK Theatre Network - 18th Jan 2014

Directed by Scott Le Crass, the play has a filmic quality...should not be missed.



La Mastication des Morts at Camden Peoples Theatre

UK Theatre Network - 7th Oct 2013
Scott Le Crass creates beautiful and disturbing images while numerous characters talk about their lives and their deaths.



Conference Call at Jack Studio Theatre
British Theatre Guide - 30th Aug 2013

The direction from Scott Le Crass make Conference Call the gripping centrepiece of the evening.

UK Theatre Network - 1st Sep 2013

Scott Le Crass creates a veritably eerie atmosphere that probes deep into our minds in a stealthy way.



Mandrake at Jack Studio Theatre-
One Stop Arts - 31st May 2013 - 4 ****

See this show and you will be treated to a fast-paced, quick-witted, rather ludicrous production that will leave you – as it did me – grinning after it ends.

British Theatre Guide - 1st June 2013

Director Scott Le Crass keeps the pace up in this production but doesn't sacrifice clarity and the little touches like French accordion music to accompany Callimaco's 'Allo 'Allo–style disguise and the false nose disguises are a treat.

Reviewsgate - 30th May 2013

A confidence that speaks of clean direction from Scott Le Crass.



Homework at The London Theatre-
The London Aisle - 16th Nov 2012 - 4 ****

Aside from its palpable relevance, Homework is simply a beautiful piece of theatre... Scott le Crass' direction, followed the naturalistic and at times almost verbatim style of the script, by omitting unnecessary elaborate flourishes...

Entertainment Focus - 16th Nov 2012 - 3 ***

With very little movement in the piece, director Scott Le Crass has concentrated very successfully in varying the pace between and even within scenes, and has brought out excellent work in his actors.



Macbeth at Greenwich Playhouse-
The Kentish Times - 14th Apr 2011

This is a striking production which director Scott Le Crass should be extremely pleased with.

Remote Goat - 8th Apr 2011- 3***

In a startling opening sequence where a tribal dance takes place to the sound of drums, clashing staves and ululations, severed heads surround the tiny stage of the Greenwich Playhouse.

An all-black cast meet the challenge of scenes that range from a haunted banquet to the slaughter of a mother and infants.

Scott Le Crass's direction is well-paced in a fine production that shows how chance, ambition and social unrest turn a military hero into a tyrant. It also makes Shakespeare's tragedy seem as contemporary as this week's newspaper headlines.


Contemporary playwrights who I admire and enjoy the work of include David Harrower, Rebecca Prichard, Bernard Marie-Koltes, David Eldridge, Philip Ridley, Timberlake Wertenbaker and Tom Basden.

Additional Skills
