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 recently directed music videos for Benjamin  Scheuer, HøneySleeper Service, and Lo-ke & Shadow Kyd, and the short films Wildflower and Homebody.

Currently I am 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.

I am currently developing a new production of Benjamin Scheuer's one-man folk musical The Lion, coming to London 2022.

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 touring the UK , 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 am an associate director for Flux Theatre's FLUX GYM, a Script Reader for the Hampstead Theatre. I completed a ‘developing playwriting’ course at the National Theatre and 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, Punchdrunk.
