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.
