I am the Associate Director for UNPRECEDENTED with Headlong Theatre Company and Century Films. This major digital project was broadcast on BBC4 as part of the BBC Art's Culture in Quarantine Season and is available on iPlayer now.


During Lockdown I also directed radio play Keep the Home Fires Burning written by Teresa Burns and commissioned by Culture Trust UK for Wardown House Museum and Gallery. Do have a listen here: https://soundcloud.com/mark-eton/keep-the-home-fires-burning 

Before COVID-19 I was at The National Theatre as Staff Director on The Visit or The Old Lady Comes to Call, adapted by Tony Kushner and directed by Jeremy Herrin. Previously Resident Assistant Director for Chichester Festival Theatre’s 2019 season, and Staff Director on Downstate for the National Theatre and Steppenwolf. Recent work as a director includes, The Last Nine Months at the Vaults Festival; Sticky at Southwark Playhouse and The Tide at the Young Vic.

I am the Co-Artistic Director of How It Ended theatre company. Our world premiere of Wild has been put on hold due to COVID-19 and is being rescheduled with The Unicorn Theatre.

My training is a culmination of time spent on The National Theatre Studio Director's Course, The Jerwood Assistant Director Programme at the Young Vic and The University of Birmingham, where I studied Drama and Theatre Arts.
