Lynda Radley

Lynda Radley is an award-winning playwright and dramaturg who has been working in professional theatre for over a decade. Her play DORM was short-listed for The Bruntwood Award: the UK's most prestigious new writing award. Lynda recently worked as dramaturg on Mark Bruce's dance version of Dracula, which won a South Bank Sky Arts Award. She is currently developing plays with the Traverse Theatre, Magnetic North and Stellar Quines. Frozen Charlotte used her story and text to develop a dance theatre production called Dandelion. In 2011, Lynda won a Scotsman Fringe First for her play Futureproof, a co-production between Dundee Rep Ensemble and the Traverse Theatre. She took part in the Dream Plays programme for Edinburgh Fringe 2012, and shared in a Herald Angel award.

Other work includes Berlin Love Tour - a walking tour of Berlin that can take place in any city - which sold out at the Fierce Festival in Birmingham, Cork Midsummer Festival and Dublin Fringe (Playgroup). In February 2012, Lynda travelled to the National Play Festival in Australia, with a delegation from the National Theatre of Scotland, where her play DORM received a rehearsed reading. Her solo show The Art of Swimming was short-listed for Meyer Whitworth and Total Theatre awards, and toured internationally. Lynda is published by Nick Hern Books. She also appears in an anthology of short plays by Irish writers, edited by Thomas Conway for Oberon. Lynda frequently works as a dramaturg and creative writing practitioner in collaborative processes (National Theatre of Scotland, Citizens' Theatre, Tricky Hat, Playgroup, Imaginate, In Cahootz) and helped to shape the Tron Theatre's production of Under Milk Wood as part of the Commonwealth Cultural Programme 2014.
