Biography

I am a writer and theatre-maker based in Nottingham, UK. My work weaves together different threads into a dynamic narrative that operates across time and space, from theatres to galleries, parked cars to park benches. I co-founded Metro-Boulot-Dodo in 1997 after studying Theatre and Creative Writing at Lancaster University. In 2004, I began a five-year live art project – The Long and Winding Road (2004-09) – that toured to ICA (London), Ikon (Birmingham) and The Bluecoat (Liverpool). I was commissioned by Nottingham Playhouse to write new plays: The White Album (2006) and The Ashes (2011).

I premiered Bolero (2014) at Nottingham Playhouse before touring to Bosnia & Herzegovina and Kosovo supported by Arts Council England and the British Council. I have made two sequels – Concerto and Solo. My work has been selected for the British Council’s Edinburgh Showcase four times. I am Principal Lecturer (Professional Practice) and joint MA Theatre Programme Leader at the University of Lincoln. I am currently editing two publications, Staging Loss: Performance as Commemoration and The Trilogy: Acts of Dramaturgy. I received a PhD from Loughborough University in 2016.
