Rosie McGowan

I have an extensive history of working with young people using drama and theatre to explore difficult and sensitive youth-related themes and issues.

I have a Masters in Applied Theatre (Drama in the Community and Drama Education) and a Masters in Counselling and often combine my knowledge of these two distinct fields throughout my practice.



As a counsellor, I work experientially and integrate a range of counselling and creative modalities throughout my work. My speciality is in addiction and trauma- I work with various addictions, as well as family members of addicts and trauma survivors.

Applied Theatre

As an applied theatre practitioner, facilitator and educator, I have taught in numerous schools and I design and conduct various workshops with communities. Themes that have been explored include the impact of sexual assault trauma on survivors; self harm; and recovery. I have worked with organisations including the Community Rehabilitation Centre; Singapore's only female halfway house, The Turning Point; The Esplanade (Singapore); and Outside Edge Theatre Company (London).

Theatre Practice

As a theatre practitioner, I have performed in The Crucible (Toy Factory Productions); Mind Map of Love, sold-out runs of The Woman Who Cooked Her Husband and Ragnarok (Skinned Knee Productions); Walking in Beauty London (Blue Bean Productions); and was dramaturg on Edith Podesta's commissioned production, Leda and The Rage (The Esplanade).
