Isabel Wright's headshot

I am a professional playwright, screenwriter and radio scriptwriter. My plays have included Blooded, Mr Placebo, Peepshow and Gilt. Blooded has been performed by numerous students for Higher Drama exams and has been included in the National Theatre's monologue collection. My plays have been produced throughout the UK and have received subsequent productions internationally. They have been produced by companies including the Traverse, Tron, 7-84, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Stephen Joseph Theatre, and Frantic Assembly. I am currently writing a radio play, Shrapnel, for R4.

My work for younger audiences includes a monologue for Visible Fictions' Now I Am project, and a commission for the Scottish Ensemble. I have extensive experience running drama and creative writing workshops with young people and adults in school and community settings for the National Theatre, Traverse, Edinburgh International Festival and Lyceum Youth Theatre.

I have worked with young people aged from 8-25 years old. I aim to create fun inclusive workshops that celebrate young people's creativity and imagination. I am also interested in running CPD workshops with teachers and other adults.
