Amy’s play THE NOBODIES was at Vault Festival 2020, produced by Chalk Line Theatre.

When a local hospital announces its closure, panic ensues. Healthcare Assistant Rhea is forced to look for work elsewhere. Local lad Aaron worries about his mum’s treatment in the cancer unit. And Curtis just isn’t sure where he’s going to sleep. But when the three witness a horrific accident, a rare opportunity presents itself and Rhea, Aaron and Curtis soon find themselves gathering power, influence and infamy – and inspiring a cohort of vigilante activists.

 

Amy’s first full-length play DIGGING DEEP was performed at the 2019 Vault Festival, supported by Lambeth Council, CALM and the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation. Reviews for DIGGING DEEP:

‘Digging Deep’ examines the rise of suicide in young men – and in particular, in young men from working class backgrounds. The play looks to explore the tight camaraderie within these communities, lack of opportunity, and feelings of frustration from young people becoming financial burdens on their parents.

Amy was nominated at the 2019 Edinburgh TV Festival’s New Writing Awards in their Debut Writer category, supported by Big Light Productions.

Born and raised in Nottingham, Amy studied Cultural Sociology at the University of Nottingham before moving to London for a day job in TV.

In 2017, she completed the BBC Doctors Shadow Scheme and is currently writing her fifth episodes of Doctors for BBC1.

In 2018/19, she has had short plays on at the Chesil Theatre and Waterloo East (‘BIRTHDAY’), the Bunker Theatre (‘STREET MAGIC’) and the Arcola Theatre (‘I LOVE YOU BABY’).

Amy is currently developing an original idea with Wild Mercury.
