I love to make work that is exciting, immersive and accessible. If it challenges how theatre could be and attracts a non-traditional theatre audience then I’m keen to get involved. I recognise that I have a working class voice, and I am most content, amplifying stories and voices that traditionally are not frequently heard in Scottish Theatre.
In 2021, my short play ‘The Box’ won an international playwriting competition and was showcased at The Space in London and streamed worldwide.
Set on base in Henlow, ‘The Box’ creates a snapshot of the anguish and struggles of Grace, a military wife who is parenting through uncertainty as her husband Scott who has PTSD has gone AWOL.
This play is a coming of age story based in Wester Hailes, Edinburgh and made it to the second stage of The Traverse Theatre’s Open Submissions process. It was longlisted for script development, however did not make the shortlist.
I am in the process of writing two plays, Confessions of a Clubaholic and in contrast a play based at the time of the Lewis Revival.
