Maddie writes what she thinks people feel, but don't talk about enough. She is a proud Scottish female playwright. You can recognise strong female characters and ideas of national identity in her work. Maddie's writing will take you on a journey through tears and laughter, then spin you round to reveal things both familiar and unexpected.


Maddie is currently studying at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School on the MA Drama Writing course with David Edgar and Stephanie Dale. She graduated from the University of Glasgow with a first class honours in Theatre Studies.

Her favourite way to create is by collaborating with lots of creative voices.

Her writing pushes to utilise all the theatrical elements of the stage.

She likes to consider how wonderfully strange it is that people gather together to watch a story unfold.

The audience are there for a reason, her work acknowledges them.
