Sonali Bhattacharyya

Playwright and Screenwriter

  • Location: London
  • Career stage: Early
  • Freelancer: Available

I’m a playwright whose commissions include 2066 (Almeida Theatre), These Four Streets (Birmingham Rep), A Thin Red Line (Kali Theatre, Birmingham Rep and Black Country Touring), The Invisible Boy for the Tricycle Theatre's 'Mapping Brent' project, and the South Bank Show award nominated White Open Spaces (Pentabus Theatre). I was one of three playwrights selected for the inaugural Old Vic 12, where I was commissioned to write a new play, Five Years.

I’m a graduate of the Royal Court writers' group, currently one of the Orange Tree Theatre’s Writers’ Collective, and writer in residence with the Coterie Theatre Company, established by director Caitlin McLeod and producer Martha Wilson.

I’m interested in telling untold stories and putting characters centre stage who have previously been absent or marginalised. I think theatre can be funnier, more exciting, and more challenging than any other medium, and that’s basically what I’m always trying to achieve.
