In 2013, she was selected for the Royal Court Theatre Writers’ Group: her play, EXHUMATION, was workshopped there in 2015 with Associate Director Lucy Morrison and cast including Anna Calder-Marshall. In spring 2018, she is working on a community engagement project for West Yorkshire Playhouse, as part of its month-long EVERY THIRD MINUTE festival.
Ming’s spec feature, ALTER EGO, won her an invitation from French screenwriters’ association, Maison des Scénaristes, to attend the International Screenwriters’ Pavilion at the Cannes Film Festival 2015 and she also gained a place on Filmonomics 2016, a BFI/Creative Skillset/Bird's Eye View scheme. In summer 2017, she wrote SCHLAF NICHT, a short commissioned for LAMDA FdA students graduating in 2018.
She also blogs at (Dementia Just Ain't) Sexy
, and writes, speaks, and campaigns on dementia and carer issues (outlets including Guardian Social Care, The Times, BBC Woman's Hour, Victoria Derbyshire, BBC Wales).
