A South Asian woman in a blue dress runs away from us, between two tall green hedges.



I’m an award-winning playwright whose productions include Two Billion Beats for InsideOutside (Orange Tree Theatre), 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’m currently under commission to the Almeida Theatre, Orange Tree, Fifth Word and Kiln Theatre.


I’m interested in dramatising the people's history, and putting characters centre stage who have previously been obscured. Stories allow us to imagine different ways of living, and that act of imagination is the first step to changing the world.
