About me

Hello! Thanks for visiting my web site.

 

I’m a writer and theatre maker from London. My work for theatre explores intimate human relationships as well as big global stories.

It aims to amplify the voices of those who are denied one, to be inclusive and accessible, and to uncover broken systems with stories with heart. Central to my stories are the voices of LGBTQIA+ people and womxn.

My work has explored subjects such as intergenerational solidarity, LGBTQIA+ rights, global causality, the impact of austerity on our capacity for love, the resilience of creative expression in the face of oppression, and vulvas. 

I'm a Judges Award Bruntwood Prize winner and have been shortlisted for the WiT Award and Theatre503's Playwriting Award. My writing has been presented to audiences at the Hampstead Theatre, Theatre503, MK Gallery, National Theatre, Southbank Centre, and VAULT Festival.

I lead feminist punk inclusive collective Where’s my Vagina? with co-collaborators Jenny Sealey and Jess Mabel Jones. I'm also an Associate at Sphinx Theatre. 

 

As well as writing, I also support other writers to develop their work for stage - as a dramaturg, facilitator and script consultant. My work in this area is informed by a decade working for new writing theatres and companies, such as Graeae and the Royal Court.
