I spend most of my time creating my own theatre projects as a writer/performer in collaboration with directors, designers and other performers.

The work I make is funny, strange and dark – often wild – often personal – sometimes political. It tours nationally and internationally.

As I writer I’ve always been interested in other media and in 2013, started writing and performing audio dramas for Radio 4. In 2016 I was BBC Birmingham’s first Writer in Residence, working across radio and TV dramas produced in the city. I’ve written for BBC series including Home Front and the award-winning Tracks. I’ve recently written for a series of VR films around domestic violence.

I also create/perform or write theatre pieces for other companies (recently for New Vic Theatre, Derby Theatre and Birmingham University) and I often collaborate as a performer, writer, director, deviser, dramaturg or outside-eye on other people’s work.

I regularly mentor emerging theatre makers and companies and lead workshops. I was 2018/19 Creative Fellow at Birmingham University’s Shakespeare Institute, teaching undergrads and postgrads whilst creating a new theatre show supported by RSC.
