Published Work and Professional Credits
London Bridge House Theatre
Following successful performances in Manchester, Hereford, and Brighton, The Bridge House Theatre in London has programmed a run of my comedy ‘Baggy Bra’ from the 6th-8th of April 2023. Partnered with the charity Against Breast Cancer, ‘Baggy Bra’ is a female-led body-positive show about family relationships, small businesses, and normalising bra fittings. After the London run, my play will be staged at Squad House from the 27th-29th of July as part of the Manchester Fringe.
GBCT, Pinewood Studios, ScreenSkills
Script Supervisor Training Course
I was offered a place on GBCT's script supervisor training course at Pinewood Studios, funded by ScreenSkills. There, I trained in script breakdowns, eyelines, coverage, paperwork, and matching action. The course was delivered by Sarah Hayward.
Crawley Film Initiative
Lead Script Supervisor
CFI asked me to be their lead script supervisor for their four-part TV miniseries 'Romeo Hotel Eleven'. I worked closely with the director, editor, and other HODs to keep continuity. The first block of filming is complete and I have been invited back to the second block in the new year.
The Hive Collective
The Hive Collective chose my latest play "Baggy Bra" for their Play in a Day event. My director described my play as "Brilliant - Hilariously witty dialogue to work with and a great concept". At the event in Manchester, the cast and I rehearsed my play ready for a showcase that evening, which sold out. Following the success of the show, I was offered two new scriptwriting projects (to be announced).

First-Class English and Creative Writing Degree
At university, I studied all forms of creative writing with a particular focus on fiction, creative non-fiction, adaptation, Shakespeare, European Theatre, screenwriting, and arts marketing. I was awarded a First for six out of the eight total modules I studied for my degree.
During their recent tour of "Hush Now", Feral Productions asked me to write and create small site-specific performances tailored to Sussex. Plus, I assisted with Feral Productions' filming at the Black Country Living Museum. Starring local actress Laura Brightey, I directed, filmed, and produced nine performances on the 10th and 11th of April 2021.
Warwick University and the International Network of Italian Theatre
Warwick University asked me to co-write and co-direct a theatrical adaptation of the book "Don't Tell Me You're Afraid" by Giuseppe Catozzella. The funded play was performed on the 11th of March 2019.
Now, the play features on the International Network of Italian Theatre's website and in Dr Alessandra De Martino Cappuccio's upcoming book. I was invited back to write a second play, which is coming soon.
