Writer in Residence

Our inaugural Writer in Residence is Trish Cooke (Back Street Mammy, Running Dream).  Awarded as an 18th month residency to a writer already working in the field, Trish will support the Bush Theatre’s literary and programming teams by mentoring young artists as well as writing a full-length play during the course of her residency. 

The Writer in Residence programme is part of the Bush Theatre’s commitment to celebrating legacy and providing opportunities for writers at every level of their career. It follows the acclaimed ‘Passing the Baton’ series, a three-year initiative to reacquaint theatre goers with the artists of colour who carved their way through British playwriting with distinction.
