Having read History at the University of Bristol, Sunita set up her own production company that produced work with Bristol Old Vic and other places across the UK for six years.

She worked at the Orange Tree Theatre before attending Drama School London to study Theatre and TV Directing. After graduating, Sunita worked on major projects with the National Theatre such as the development and first presentation of War Horse, before becoming a producer at Battersea Arts Centre where she programmed and delivered festivals. Sunita then moved to Sadler’s Wells as Project Manager whilst also managing the incubator programme for new choreographers in partnership with the Jerwood Foundation.

Sunita then became the Executive Director of WildWorks (a Cornish landscape and participatory-focused theatre company) leading the company for two years, before joining Southbank Centre. Initially working as a Producer at Southbank Centre, Sunita moved into the Executive role of Director of Artistic Planning, Partnerships and Administration, totalling 7.5 years at Southbank Centre.

Sunita now balances her time between being COO for the National Academy for Social Prescribing and offering executive consultancy around Arts and Culture for clients such as the National Theatre, Museum of Home, Unboxed 2022 and the Unicorn Theatre. Sunita leads Equality, Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging workshops and strategy work, as well as being the current Chair of Tara Theatre Ltd and has been giving lectures on Creative Producing (and Business Management) at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama for the past decade.

Previously Sunita was Deputy Chair at Battersea Arts Centre as well as Trustee at Shoreditch Town Hall and the Orange Tree Theatre.
