Lucy Kirkwood's first play Tinderbox premiered at the Bush
Theatre, London, in 2008. In the same year she provided material
for the Bush's 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover and Hedda,
a reworking of Ibsen's Hedda Gabler, for the Gate Theatre.
She is currently writer in residence for Clean Break and a new
play, The Shoreditch Spinsters, directed by Matthew Warchus
is planned to open in the West End next year.
'unflinching... theatre that provokes in the best way, without lurid melodrama or sentimentality, but with wit and tenderness... demands that we watch and listen' The Times
