Channel 4 Writer in Residence |Orange Tree
I'm really excited to have been selected as the Channel 4 writer in residence at the wonderful Orange Tree Theatre this year. I'll be developing a new play about the gig economy, Bengali folk theatre, and late capitalism, with support from Guy Jones.
Megaball |National Theatre Learning
Create an extraordinary school play with the National Theatre! I had a blast writing 'Megaball' for the new 'Let's Play' programme for primary schools, which includes music from composer Harry Blake.
'Let’s Play' is an ambitious creative learning programme that can transform creativity and theatre-making in your school. Using a programme of CPDL, specially commissioned plays for children to perform and a suite of learning resources, 'Let’s Play' inspires learning across the curriculum.
Kali's Toenail |A New Musical
I'm currently developing the new musical 'Kali's Toenail' with composer Theo Jamieson. Set against a backdrop of Hindu nationalism in contemporary India, the show explores the rivalry between two cousins through pop music and politics. We are very excited to have support from the Arts Council to develop the project with Theatre Royal Stratford East.
Writer in Residence |Coterie Theatre
I'm really excited to be working with director Caitlin McLeod and producer Martha Wilson as one of three writers in residence with new theatre company, The Coterie. I will be collaborating with them on developing a new play about revenge, internet trolling, and the failures of liberalism.
