Sean is Associate Director on the West End, UK, Asia and New Zealand touring productions of the hit comedy The Play That Goes Wrong, and directed the Australian replica production.  Sean trained at ALRA, East 15 and in Devising with Complicite.  He is responsible for unearthing the script of Arthur Miller's first play, No Villain, which he directed at the Old Red Lion, later transferring to Trafalgar Studios 2.

Timely and totally absorbing remount of Eric Bogosian’s searing character study

Sean Turner directs the Australian cast with the precision and flair such farce demands
The Age on The Play That Goes Wrong (Australian tour)

Turner’s raw, claustrophobic production makes a strong case for the interest of what Miller himself considered his most autobiographical play
Evening Standard on No Villain

With this thrilling discovery, Sean Turner has done a great service to Miller studies, but also to audiences in search of gripping and intelligent drama
