Arabian Nights SocialPost V2.png
Arabian Nights |Bristol Old Vic

So excited to be reimagining Arabian Nights for Nancy Medina's first season at Bristol Old Vic! 

A daring heroine, captivating songs, and a timeless story of wonder and hope ✨

Schere has the quickest wits, greatest courage and most marvellous stories. Now she plans to liberate every young woman in the Kingdom from the greedy, tyrannical King. All through the power of her storytelling. But can she really do this alone? And is the first person she has to turn to really her annoying younger sister?

Together, they light up the Kingdom with magic, excitement, unity and hope in the festive season.

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.
