I am a playwright based in Melbourne.
I am a 2020 participant in Melbourne Theatre Company’s Women in Theatre program (for dramaturgy) and a writer in residence at Theatre Works.
My plays have been produced internationally. Most recently, I adapted Randolph Stow’s novel Tourmaline for the Street Theatre in Canberra.
Previous plays include War Stories (as co-writer), which had multiple productions in the UK and Ireland; Bloodletting (winner of the Bread and Roses Theatre Award, London); Johnny Castellano is Mine (winner Canberra Critics Circle Award); The Pyjama Girl; Widowbird; and Love Cupboard. The Pyjama Girl, first produced by HotHouse Theatre, is published by Australian Plays.
As well as writing plays, I also write about place. I have a Master of Arts in Creative Non-Fiction (Place Writing) from Manchester Metropolitan University. My place-based work includes a spoken-word audio walking tour for the You Are Here Festival in 2017, and I am currently under commission to develop a site-specific audio piece for Moreland’s Monument to Now arts festival.
