Born in London, I grew up in Buckinghamshire before running back to London, and finally away to Cambridge. Since the early 2000s, I have written and produced a lot of theatre, but that has grown into writing and making many other things…

I also code! More on that can be found via www.bodja.com

Since 2003 I have written professionally for all kinds of contexts - prose, plays, short plays, short films, online and offline games and educational projects. Currently working on a podcasted collection of short stories...

Over the years, I have given talks and run workshops to a very wide variety of audiences, in a wide range of locations, usually around the subject of storytelling and its applications, but sometimes on other things!

Plays

I had always been involved in theatre in one form or another, directing, acting, sweeping the stage, but while at university I began to gravitate towards writing, and that culminated in my twenties in a period at the Royal Court Young Writers programme, and an MA in Theatre Arts at Goldsmiths College.

In 2003 I received my first professional commission from Paines Plough (in conjunction with Graeae theatre company). The following year, that resulted in On Blindness, a co-production between Paines Plough, Graeae and Frantic Assembly, which opened at the Soho Theatre, London and went on a small UK tour thereafter. The same year, my adaptation of Sophocles' Antigone, Gone, won awards at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and transferred back to London at the New Amabassadors Theatre.

Since then I have had several productions in the UK and beyond. I have also written a fair few short plays (more on those here), largely as a result of my associations with The Miniaturists.
