Writer and (occasional) director, interested in opportunities to collaborate and develop new work. I'm a theatre writer with experience of being commissioned and working to a brief, a fascination with science and a desire to see more women’s stories on stage.

I’m one of six writers who’ll be creating a brand new play in a day with The 24 Hour Plays UK, at the Laurence Batley Theatre in September 2020. Postponed by coronavirus, I’ve been selected to take part in Criterion New Writing (designed to teach playwrights how to write for the West End stage) and had my piece ‘Last blast’ chosen for the We Are Here mini festival, celebrating women over 50

My play "Shed" was in the top 15% of scripts received by the BBC Script Room Drama in 2019 and my screenplay treatment "Heartlands" was shortlisted for the 25th Annual Euroscript Screenwriting Competition.  I was also one of the writers selected to workshop my idea with students for the "Write the girl" project, designed to develop meaningful stories for large casts that engage young women.

I've recently had short plays staged at Theatre503 (in the Rapid Write Response to "Br'er Cotton"), Southwark Playhouse, the Pleasance and the Arcola Theatre and my first audio drama, "Devil's Rock" written for Big Finish Productions, was released in 2017.  I was longlisted for The Old Vic 12 scheme in 2016 and commissioned to write two site-specific plays for the MAZE festival with Sheer Drop Theatre; I was also one of the six writers of Fun Palaces' WriteScience pieces. In 2015, I was shortlisted for the Euroscript Story competition and a finalist in the RED Women Theatre Awards, who staged a rehearsed reading of my work at Greenwich Theatre.
