ABOUT

 

I am a writer, performer and theatre-maker currently living in London. After completing a BA in English and Drama at Royal Holloway, University of London, I went on to study for an MA in Theatre and Performance at Queen Mary, University of London where I developed a love of creating bold and challenging theatre, often using live-art and multi-media techniques. I then completed an MA in Acting at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts for which I achieved a Distinction grade. I am now a guest-lecturer and creative tutor at Mountview on the importance of creating your own work.

 

Since then, I have been working as a perfomer in fringe theatre, often creating and performing in my own work. I have also been successful in my work solely as a writer, having had work staged at theatres such as Theatre N16, Tristan Bates Theatre, Theatre 503, The Bunker, Southwark Playhouse and The Criterion Theatre. My first play, Lippy, was one of three shows shortlisted for Best Newcomer at Brighton Fringe 2018 and my play When It Happens was recently nominated for an Off West End Award for Best Play in a Short Run. My most recent play Please, Feel Free to Share has now been programmed for a full run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2020, following a successful London scratch run.

 

I was recently commissioned as a writer by Small Truth Theatre for their ACE supported venue The Kensington Karavan, am an associate writer with Flux Theatre as a part of their FLUX GYM and I am a member of The Criterion Theatre's New Writing group 2019.
