Writing

I have written for both games and theatre, including original scripts, adaptations of classic texts, translations of interviews into scripts, and semi-devised texts.

The Last Thing Left (online) – an audio game following various civilians caught in the middle of conflict. Click here for more information on the game.

I Won’t Make It On My Own (NSTheatres) – a semi-devised piece, developed with the cast in R&D and with community members in storytelling workshops that I facilitated. I used their contributions as a starting point for a gently interactive and occasionally metatheatrical play that followed three different plot lines within one house, exploring the tangible and intangible things people make.

Inheritance (Plymouth Fringe Festival) – a solo piece, centred around a twenty-minute monologue about my relationship with my grandparents, their deaths, my history with loneliness, and the intersection of those three things.

Object Love (Vault Festival) – a script based on interviews I conducted with various objectum-sexual people about their romantic relationships with objects.

SPARK (Vault Festival) – an adaptation of the gothic ballad Lenore, transforming it into a one-woman piece set on the North Norfolk coast which combined storytelling, dialogue and magic.

Slipping (Seven Dials) – a fifteen minute monologue about a woman dealing with her grandparents’ deaths, performed as part of Riff Raff’s Lost Soles programme.

Samples of my writing:

Endings, an interactive story.

Acceptance, a monologue written in response to the brief of ‘an acceptance speech’.

Contact, a short play inspired by a Dread game’s narrative.
