About Charlie Josephine

Charlie Josephine is a writer, director and actor.

Their latest play, COWBOIS, has been announced as part of the RSC’s summer season for 2023. A “rollicking queer cowboy show”, the play will open in October at the Swan Theatre.

Recent work includes FLIES (Boundless Theatre), BIRDS AND BEES (Theatre Centre) and ONE OF THEM ONES (Pentabus).

Charlie is currently under commission for new plays with the RSC and NT Connections and is writing a play as the Headlong Writer-In-Residence. They are also developing a new feature biopic with Salon Pictures.

Amongst Charlie’s previous work, 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. It was later developed as a feature with BBC Films.

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