Anita Sullivan

Writing includes radio drama, site-specific theatre, podcasts, animation and interactive video.

My work is very varied but typically explores the connection between the past and the present, humans and our environment.

All of my 60+ commissioned plays have been staged/ filmed/ broadcast, many with revised productions and tours. Several have won awards. I've had over 20 hours of drama broadcast on BBC Radio 4.
