Jo Clifford

Jo Clifford is a playwright, performer, proud father and grandmother.

She is the author of over 100 plays.

She recently performed her Gospel According to Jesus Queen of Heaven in Sao Paulo just before lockdown after a hugely successful 10th anniversary season in the Tron in October.

Her translation of Life is a Dream was to be revived by the Lyceum in May; the Finnish translation of her Wuthering Heights briefly ran in Helsinki; and her Light in the Village (in an Urdu translation) was to open in Karachi in July.

Last year she performed as one of the women in Tai Shani's Turner Prize winning installation DC Semiramis in the Turner Gallery Margate; her Anna Karenina had a highly successful run in Tokyo, and her queer version of The Taming of the Shrew was performed to great acclaim in Cardiff and Glasgow.

She is currently co-creating a dance/spoken word piece with the dancer Skye Reynolds; and The Not So Ugly Duckling with the actress and writer Maria MacDonell.

She is also creating a weekly online blessing with Queen Jesus; and has made several short pieces during lockdown.
