About the director, Tramaine Reindorf

View Tramaine's profile here

Tramaine Reindorf is an accomplished director who has created excellent work on the MA Directing course. Tramaine qualified with a Post Graduate Certificate in Education for English & Drama from University College London (UCL). From there she became the Head of Drama at Lilian Baylis School in Oval, London, where she worked for two years in this role encouraging young people from Black and global majority groups to participate in the arts and create work that tells their stories. 

Tramaine loved working with young people and, even though she has moved on from this chapter in her life, she will continue to be influenced by her time in school; just as she did in education settings, Tramaine will continue to create culturally and socially driven work.

Loy A. Webb is a Chicago born playwright, attorney and theatre journalist. Her plays include The Light (MCC Theater 2018/2019, Outer Critics Circle nomination for Outstanding New Off-Broadway Play; The New Colony, 2017/2018, Joseph Jefferson Award), and His Shadow (16th Street Theater 2019/2020). She was an inaugural Tutterow Fellow at Chicago Dramatists, and as theatre journalist she is a member of the Association of Women of Journalist-Chicago, a past mentor with the AWJ-Chicago/Goodman Theatre’s Cindy Bandle Young Critics Program, and a contributing theater critic for Newcity. Loy holds a B.A. in Political Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and a J.D. from The John Marshall Law School.

During the one-year postgraduate MA Directing programme, directors build their practice through an intense programme of practical classwork, reflective tutorials and attachments as assistant directors on LAMDA productions, supporting the work of professional directors. Training culminates with each student directing and realising a play of their choice in one of our performance spaces.
