I'm Alex Stenhouse and I'm a director working in theatre and film, based in London and the South West of England. 

I am interested in creating bold artistic work filled with sincerity and humanity, that feels spontaneous and honest, that explores form and narrative structures, and tells stories that feel intimate and small, but resonate much wider.

I directed the critically lauded one-man folk musical The Lion with Sean Daniels, starring Max Alexander-Taylor. The Lion opened May 2022 at the Southwark Playhouse, and later this year will transfer across-the-pond to America for a U.S. Tour, playing Arizona Theatre Company (ATC), both Tuscon & Phoenix  theatres, as well as Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, with further U.S. tour dates to be announced. The show is produced by Danielle Tarento and ATC.

I recently directed music videos for Steven Weston (feat. RHODES, Låpsley & Taė), Benjamin Scheuer, HøneySleeper Service, and Lo-ke & Shadow Kyd, and the short films Wildflower and Homebody. I am currently in post-production on a music video for Calmness for their new single Angel.

I was the Assistant Director of the UK Tour of Nöel Coward's brilliant play Private Lives, starring Nigel Havers and Patricia Hodge - opening at Theatre Royal Bath, and touring venues such as Chichester Festival Theatre, The Lowry and Sheffield Lyceum.

I was recently the Associate Director of Wonderful Town at Opera Holland Park, Creative Team Assistant on the brand new production of Disney's Beauty and the Beast which is toured UK before transferring to London Palladium in the West End, as well as being the Assistant Director on Elegies for Angels, Punks and Raging Queens at the Union Theatre, Seussical at the Southwark Playhouse and My Dad's Gap Year at The Park Theatre.

I was an associate director for Flux Theatre's FLUX GYM. I completed a ‘developing playwriting’ course at the National Theatre, I was a Script Reader for the Hampstead Theatre and I was part of Shakepeare's Globe's 'Directing Studio'.

Training: University of Exeter, National Youth Music Theatre (NYMT), Robert Icke & Lydnsey Turner, and Katie Mitchell's weekly director's groups, Young Vic Directors Programme, Mono Box (Meisner), Punchdrunk.
