Why I Direct – Mark Babych

How does it feel to be an artistic director of a theatre company?

Mark Babych is the artistic director of Hull Truck Theatre.

Mark has directed a wide range of shows including Mighty Atoms (named after the nickname of Hull boxing legend Barbara Buttrick), Martha, Josie and the Chinese Elvis, Educating Rita and most recently, A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian, inspired by his parents experience fleeing Ukraine to start a better life.

For the third in our ‘Why I…’ series, we ask Mark why he tells stories and what his inspiration was for A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian, running at Hull Truck Theatre until Saturday 14 October.
