The Director


Emma King-Farlow
is the founder and Artistic Director of Shadow Road Productions. Her directing credits include a double-bill of Lucille Fletcher's chillers Sorry, Wrong Number and The Hitch-Hiker, a sell-out production of Guy van der Westhuizen's new comedy Oswald's Return, Martin Foreman's one-man plays Angel and Los Feliz, David Ives' award-winning comedy Time Flies, C.S. Lewis' children's classic The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, Jean Anouilh's powerful retelling of Antigone and the self-penned short film Absolution.

Emma has also devised and directed five original productions: Diamond Days (commissioned by the Barnes Literary Society), A Countdown to Christmas, The Road to Remembrance, Warriors and The Poetry & The Pity, the latter three of which were staged in aid of the Forces charity Combat Stress.

A published children's writer, Emma has always been passionate about all forms of storytelling. Having founded Durham University's film making society, Silver Screen, she then went on to study film making at The New York Film Academy in London and the Raindance independent film school in Soho. This was followed by some supplementary classes with the Documentary Filmmakers Group and, most recently, attendance at both the Guerilla Film Makers Masterclass and the Practical Producers Masterclass run by Living

Spirit Pictures. Emma's own experience onstage, combined with the many examinations that she has taken in both acting and singing, and the additional drama training that she has enjoyed, have all resulted in a good understanding of and empathy with the various actors whom she directs, writes for and occasionally performs alongside!

Emma is also becoming increasingly known for her work with Combat Stress, having previously staged three theatrical events in aid of the Forces charity: The Road to Remembrance, Warriors and The Poetry & The Pity. On Remembrance Day this year, she is directing her biggest production so far - Dreams from the Pit, a new play she has written following extensive research and interviews with former and current military personnel, therapists and other healthcare professionals. All profits from this one-night performance at the Palace Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue (Monday 11th November) will go directly to the charity.
