Former New Playwrights Award

Drew Taylor-Wilson

Drew Taylor-Wilson is an award-winning multi-hypenate theatre maker, trained at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

As a writer, Drew's work has been developed by Traverse Theatre Edinburgh (as part of Traverse 50 New Playwrights' Scheme and as part of 2019 PRIDE PLAYS), National Theatre of Scotland, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Theatre 503 London, New Wolsey Ipswich, IdeasTap, New Inck Scotland, macrobert Stirling, SHOWROOM Scotland, Glasgay! and Citizens Theatre (as part of TAKE ME SOMEWHERE). Drew has been commissioned by Glasgow Commonwealth Games 2014 Cultural Festival and Brighton International Festival, and has recently completed his first national tour of a play thick skin, elastic heart - funded by Creative Scotland's inaugural Touring Fund. He received a Playwrights' Studio Scotland New Playwrights Award in 2015 - mentored by Lynda Radley and David Greig.

Drew's theatrical output sits at intersections between artforms, often incorporating contemporary poetry/spoken word into playwriting, utilising physical theatre/dance theatre forms in delivery and live-art techniques as part of dramaturgy. His work is athletic, messy, politically and socially provoking, blackly comedic and always presented in a warm inviting space.

Drew is an experienced theatre director, dramaturg, producer - and former performance poet, often working on multiple facets of production. He has extensive experience as a young artist development specialist - working with organisations like the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Scottish Youth Theatre and Performance Collective Stranraer to develop theatrical talent across Scotland.
