Joyce Lee

Playwright and Screenwriter

Studied a Ticked course

I’m a graduate of Soho Theatre Young Writers’ Programme, Royal Court’s Unheard Voices, and the MA in Playwriting and Screenwriting at City University London.  

I have had short plays performed at the Old Vic, Roundhouse Studio, and with Yellow Earth Theatre Company.  A short immersive piece that I wrote called ‘Crystals’ was performed with ImmerCity Theatre Company as part of their ‘The Alchemical Door’ series.  My monologue won West Yorkshire Playhouse’s Crash Pad.  

I was a Barbican Young Filmmaker and a writer for EastEnders: E20 (online/BBC3).

Recently, my full-length play, ‘Orchids’, has been developed with Papergang Theatre Company.  An extract was performed with Papergang as part of their ECHO evening in the Attic Space at the Bush Theatre. The full-length script was given a rehearsed reading with Papergang as part of the SEA Arts Fest at the Tristan Bates Theatre in December 2015 after a week of Arts Council funded workshopping.
