Timothy L’Ecuyer is a theatre director and teaching artist with an interest in work that sits at the intersections of things: the collision of the classical and contemporary, the mundane and the eternal, the academic and the immediate.

Mr. L'Ecuyer has BAs in theatre and English from Keene State College as well as an MA and MFA in theatre education from Emerson College. He holds New Hampshire state teacher certifications in both English and theatre and has taught at Merrimack High School, Windham High School and Alvirne High School.
