FOR THOSE WHO CRY WHEN THEY HEAR THE FOXES SCREAM earned her a 2016 Offie Nomination for Most Promising New Playwright:

"An exceptional piece of new writing... will leave you literally winded." Grumpy Gay Critic *****

"...dialogue littered with caustic wit." Female Arts *****

"Theatre that defies mainstream conventions." London Theatre1 ****

"Hamblin's FOR THOSE WHO CRY has its voice, its own timbre" Exeunt Magazine

“... the first play of Charlotte Hamblin and this is a rather very exciting debut! The play is all you want a new piece to be: original, creative, witty and honest. And Hamblin’s writing is indeed incredibly moving, but also brutal and sharp" Plays to See ****

"A lively, funny and gloriously refreshing piece of new writing; a joy to witness from start to finish...Hamblin's dark humour is irresistible" Everything Theatre *****


Charlotte is currently working on a new play and developing a TV sitcom, co-written with Tori Allen-Martin. For her acting work, she is represented by Julian Belfrage Associates and Sean Gascoine at United Agents for Literary.
