Playwright & Dramaturg

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

I am a Playwright and Dramaturg. Currently writer-in-residence with SQUINT theatre company.

I'm excited by work that asks challenging questions about where we are and where we're going as a society today. It's my belief that theatre should grab audiences by the scruff of the neck, provoke debate and stir discussion. I am inspired by the desire to stretch the boundaries of theatrical form and experiment with fresh collaborative ways of working. 

Current production: MOLLY | The Pleasance Courtyard, Above | Edinburgh Fringe Festival | Until Aug 30 | 16.40

'An impressive ensemble...spot-on direction' - The Stage ★★★★ 

'Dark...edgy...chilling' - The Scotsman ★★★★

'Harrowing and mesmerising' - A Younger Theatre ★★★★

Have previously staged work at: The Rag Factory (There Are No Girls on the Internet, 2015), Charing Cross Theatre (Long Story Short, 2015), Arcola Theatre (Kaleidoscope, 2014), Lyric Hammersmith Studio (Circadia, 2012), New Wimbeldon Theatre (Broken News, 2012), Cockpit Theatre (Love Thy Neighbour, 2010).

I also work as a Workshop Facilitator with young people and senior groups. I'm currently developing an audio-installation/site-sensitive performance in collaboration with the Arcola Theatre Young Company. This piece will send the audience on journey through the Arcola building and into the streets of Dalston, and examine the local civic history of the East London area.

I have also written for The Stage, Exeunt and A Younger Theatre and was recently shortlisted as a Grand Finalist for The Stage Critic Search competition.
