Charlotte Josephine



Jonathan Kinnersley

Charlotte is a writer and actress, currently playing Mercutio in ROMEO & JULIET for the RSC, for whom she’s also writing an accompanying play. She’s also under commission for a new play with Boundless Theatre.

Charlotte’s debut play BITCH BOXER won the Soho Theatre Young Writers Award 2012, the Old Vic New Voices Edinburgh Season 2012, the Holden Street Theatre’s Award 2013, and the Adelaide Fringe Award 2014. “Sweat-slick and tough, yet sweet and gifted with terrific timing” – The Times. “A pumped up underdog with a big heart” – The Independent. She is currently adapting it as a movie for BBC Films.

Her play BLUSH enjoyed a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where it picked up The Stage Edinburgh Award then transferred to Camden People’s Theatre as part of the Calm Down Dear Feminist Festival. It toured throughout 2017, having opened at the Soho Theatre.

Reviews for BLUSH:

★★★★☆ “It’s riveting…” – The Times
★★★★☆ “Vital theatre…” – The Stage
★★★★☆ “Charlotte Josephine follows up her hit debut with an energetic two-hander …” – Evening Standard
★★★★☆ “Powerful and important theatre…”- The Telegraph
★★★★★ “Essential viewing, and just like Bitch Boxer it packs a heavy punch” – WhatsOnStage

Her play BLUE was awarded the Octagon Prize by the Bolton Octagon, where it was performed between June and July 2017. In 2018 her play STICKY was performed at the Southwark Playhouse having been commissioned by the BRIT School.

Her plays are published by Oberon Books.

For screen work, Charlotte won the inaugural BBC Screenplay First Award, and in March 2017 she was named on the BBC New Talent Hotlist.
