I’m a playwright whose commissions include Megaball (National Theatre Learning), 2066 (Almeida Theatre), The Invisible Boy (Kiln Theatre) and the South Bank Show award nominated White Open Spaces (Pentabus Theatre). I was one of three playwrights selected for the inaugural Old Vic 12, and was 2018 Channel 4 writer in residence at the Orange Tree Theatre, where I wrote Chasing Hares, winner of the Sonia Friedman Production Award. I’m currently under commission to Fifth Word and Kiln Theatre.
I’m interested in telling untold stories and putting characters centre stage who have previously been absent or marginalised. Stories allow us to imagine different ways of being, and that act of imagination is the first step to changing the world.
