ABOUT ME

finlay carroll

I am a creative producer and activist specialising in musical theatre which tackles social issues through its process and content. I have links to London and the South West.

In 2021 I will graduate from the University of Exeter with a BA in English & Drama. During this degree, I have particularly explored performance produced under the shadow of both the climate crisis and the HIV/AIDS epidemic.

I am currently a student research fellow with Exeter Decolonising Network and a facilitator of Opening Up Exeter.
