”There is both snap and crackle in the writing, she knows how to place a smart joke, but it is also terrific on the teenage insecurities that make friendship so treacherous, particularly in the digital age […] you can’t look away.” Lyn Gardner, StageDoor

Her play ‘Snapdragon’ was performed in the Abbey’s Peacock Theatre as part of the Future Tense commissions in 2016. She was also part of an invitation group at the Royal Court led by E.V.Crowe.
