Former Mentored Playwright

Andy Edwards

Andy is a writer, performer and dramaturg based in Glasgow, as well as a graduate from the University of Glasgow's Playwriting and Dramaturgy MLitt programme. In 2015-2016, he was a mentored playwright under Playwrights Studio Scotlands' Mentoring Programme, mentored by Rob Drummond, during which time he was developing a piece engaging with urban anxieties, spaces, and temporalities.

His first piece, Killing Time, was produced with the Edinburgh University Theatre Company at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe, receiving four-star reviews from Fest, A Younger Theatre, and The Edinburgh Evening News. Since then, he has developed a body of work through engagements with Theatre Uncut, Scrapyard Theatre, and Bread Street Theatre; and following a period of development with the Traverse Young Writer's Group, his second play, anchor, was performed in June 2014 with Discover 21 (Edinburgh) and the Ophelia Dalston (London).

Andy has been engaged with two ongoing projects. The ground, the highest point is a collaborative duet of text and dance formed with the artist and dancer Paul Hughes that showed Word of Warning's Emergency Festival (Manchester) and Spontaneous Combustion 2015 (London). Produced throughout academic study, LAP by LAP is a collection of forty-three texts that re-perform a thirteen hour journey made aboard the Glasgow Subway that is currently being adapted for performance.
