Writer - Director - Performer



I am an international award winning actress, writer, and director, who has worked predominantly in mainstream and devised theatre since 2016. My work focuses on decolonising the canon of theatre & amplifying the stories of marginalised groups through race, gender, & sexuality. I have a two-pronged approach to decolonising the canon; on one hand I create new texts through devising, on the other hand I take pre-existing texts and politically occupy them. My aesthetic is non-realistic, clean lined, & maximalist, with throbbing bass lines, & its tongue firmly in its cheek.

I am a twice-published playwright, the former Artistic Director of The Furies Co-Operative, and an alumnus of the Lincoln Centre Theater's Directors Lab 2017. I am currently an associate artist at the National Youth Theatre of Great Britain, a visiting lecturer at Mountview London, and the Associate Director for the Actors Touring Company and LAMDA.
