Ruby writes for stage, performance and site-specific/collaborative projects. To date she has written and directed two staged plays, Roadway and Bink (Durham Assembly Rooms, 2014) and Pillow Talk (Camden People’s Theatre, 2017). Roadway and Bink won Best Play at Durham Drama Festival and Pillow Talk premiered at HOTBED Festival of Sex, after which it was invited back to the theatre for further development.
Ruby has experience of creating work from material generated by interviewing the general public. This has seen her lead projects in Leeds, Manchester and London, generally exploring the relationship between a particular theme (food/the city/place) and the formation of identity in participants. Ruby has the ability to build a trustful relationship with vulnerable client groups, as evidenced by her work with care-leavers for This is Me (Waterloo Action Arts Centre, 2017).
Ruby graduated from King’s College London with an MA in Contemporary Literature, Culture and Theory in 2015.
