Mhairi Ledgerwood

I am a Scottish writer based in the North-East of England. I have had several short plays performed at venues such as: The Traverse, Live Theatre, Alphabetti Theatre, and Jabberwocky Market. My one act play White Noise was performed at ARC Stockton in 2015 as a rehearsed reading, following mentoring by Bruntwood Prize winner Vivienne Franzmann. My play Parklife started as a short play at Live Theatre, before being professionally produced for Live Theatre’s Live Lab Elevator Festival in 2017. In 2018, my play Paper Tiger was given a rehearsed reading at The Royal Court and Northern Stage, following a development process through The Royal Court Writers Group (North). Paper Tiger was shortlisted for Theatre 503’s International Playwriting Award 2020. I am developing a play about the first British women to complete at the Olympics for swimming, which is supported by a bursary from Live Theatre. In early 2023, I was awarded a seed comission from The Bush Theatre, to develop my new play, Barcelona.
