Dr Alessandra De Martino's Testimonial

“Izzy Searle is an original, expressive, evocative writer. I met Izzy three years ago, whilst
auditioning script writers for a project of theatre adaptation of a literary work I conducted
at the University of Warwick. Her commitment and contribution to the venture were
remarkable. She worked with her colleagues in a very productive way and was always ready
to make stimulating suggestions. Alongside script writing, she produced a selection of
poems inspired by the source text, telling the story of a Somali runner who drowned in
2012, whilst crossing the Mediterranean Sea on a migrant boat, which are highly suggestive
and moving. Her deep interpretation of the source text allowed her to create outstanding
dialogues, impeccably written and very touching.


At present, she is taking part in another project I am directing, which involves the creation
of a co-written theatre script on the theme of violence against women. The project concerns
the creation of a multi-layered text, encompassing translated monologues from Italian,
original play-text, verbatim theatre and physical theatre choreography. I decided to ask her
again to participate, given the highly successful outcome from the previous collaboration
and, on this occasion too, she has maintained a high standard of commitment and
contribution. It is a pleasure to work with Izzy and I foresee a successful career for her in
creative writing."
