Playwrights' Studio

Former New Playwrights Award

Corinne Salisbury

Corinne Salisbury was one of the 2016 recipients of the Playwrights' Studio Scotland New Playwrights Award, for which she was mentored by Zinnie Harris and Philip Howard.

While based in London she had work performed at venues including Hampstead Theatre, Theatre503, the Old Red Lion, the Spiegeltent on London's Southbank, Live Theatre Newcastle, Camden People's Theatre, Camden Roundhouse, the Yard Theatre, Southwark Playhouse, the Old Vic Theatre, and at the Public Theater in New York. She was selected for three programmes with Old Vic New Voices, the Old Vic's prestigious talent development scheme: the Time/Warner IGNITE project, the T.S. Eliot US/UK Exchange, and the 24 Hour Plays.

Since moving to Scotland in 2015 she's been longlisted for the Tron Theatre's Progressive Playwright competition; had short plays performed with Urban Fox theatre company, with the Mixtape project to create new musical theatre work, at the CCA in Glasgow, with Village Pub Theatre and at Hidden Door Festival in Edinburgh, and on the main stage at the Tron. She's also been commissioned to write two new full-length plays for Strange Town youth theatre, performed at the Scottish Storytelling Centre and the Traverse Theatre.

She is a recipient of an Athenaeum Award from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, for a creative research project to write a new play that brings a fresh approach to literary biography. Her current work in development includes a play set in the world of traditional travelling circus, a play about artificial intelligence and technology-assisted child-rearing, supported by the Edinburgh Science Festival, and a feminist verbatim theatre project which has support from Stellar Quines. Her writing work is supported by the Peggy Ramsay Foundation.
