​Shortlisted amongst UK and international entries

Aug 2019


I was a writer for Theatre In Motion: Multi-Lingual Translation and Performance, a funded project with the Italian Studies department at Warwick University. As part of a team of five, I adapted Giuseppe Catozzella's novel Non dirmi che hai paura (Don't Tell Me You're Afraid in English) for the stage, collaboratively writing the script. I also acted in the play. The script will be published in an upcoming book.
