I’m a playwright whose commissions include Megaball (National Theatre Learning), 2066 (Almeida Theatre), The Invisible Boy (Kiln Theatre, formerly the Tricycle) 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, where I was commissioned to write a new play, Five Years.
I’m currently Channel 4 writer in residence at the Orange Tree Theatre, and also writer in residence at The Coterie theatre company.
I’m interested in telling untold stories and putting characters centre stage who have previously been absent or marginalised. I think theatre can be funnier, more exciting, and more challenging than any other medium, and that’s what I’m always striving for.
