ABOUT JONNY

From April 2020 to August 2022 he was the Artistic Director of the OSO theatre in South-West London. It saw 400+ live performances of 250+ productions, reaching record audience numbers in spite of the pandemic. 

Before transitioning to directing and design, Jonny worked as an actor, appearing in West End productions of Billy Elliot (Victoria Palace Theatre) and Twisted Tales (Lyric Hammersmith).
