Hello! My name is Ellen (she/her). I am a South London based playwright and queer theatremaker. In 2020 I graduated from The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama with a first class honours in BA Drama, Applied Theatre and Education. My drama school experience provided me with the opportunity to engage and collaborate with a number of organisations such as Montage Theatre Arts, The Lowry Theatre in Manchester, Greater Manchester Youth Network and The Scout Association. Alongside this I discovered my love for playwriting, and I have had work produced at various organisations like at RCSSD with rehearsed readings, Young Pleasance Theatre and ShowFace Festival. I have also had the privilege of being longlisted for several Royal Court Theatre Writer programs and occasionally I undertake script reading consultancies for emerging writers. Currently I work as an SEN Teaching Assistant for those with severe and profound learning disabilities.
I am incredibly excited to join the Thunk-It Team as a Committee member and Treasurer, as I am eager to learn and develop as a Community Arts Practitioner with such a fresh, fantastic and emerging theatre company.
