How would you describe yourself?

A Writer/Theatre maker

What was the first play you saw?

The first play I saw which had a big effect on me was an adaptation of the Fall of the House of Usher whilst at 6th Form

Where do you like to work?

I prefer to write at home, alone. Usually in a comfy chair or in bed rather than at a desk.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

Always an actress which I did for a while but got distracted by making and writing theatre. Writing has over taken acting as my preferred activity.

What inspires you about theatre?

How every performance is a unique experience for everyone involved.

What is your greatest wish?

That my work connects and resonates with an audience

What is your favourite thing about Birmingham?

How unassuming it is. How it often doesn’t realise how brilliant it is.

What do you see when you look out of the window?

A place I don’t always understand
