“[a] stunning new play…Lisa Parry’s script is crisp and lucid. I propose that it is in the running for best Welsh new play of 2018.” – Get the Chance on 2023.
“wonderfully written…it tackles a sensitive topic with intelligence and creativity. It is funny without being too light, and emotive without being too heavy” – Wales Arts Review on 2023.
“a truly thought-provoking piece… It is certainly a play that will stay with its audience far after its end” – Art Scene in Wales on 2023.
Hello! Thanks for visiting my website.
My play The Merthyr Stigmatist will be staged at the Sherman in 2021 as a co-production with Theatre Uncut. I'm also one of Theatr Clwyd's writers in residence for 2020 and my piece Pandora's Gift, for families to perform at home, is available for download here. I am currently under commission from Fly High Stories, as well as developing a new play, supported by the Peggy Ramsay Foundation. My lockdown short play Medical Advances for Keep On Writing 20 is available to watch here.
My work has been staged by leading new writing theatre companies including: Dirty Protest, The Miniaturists, PopUp Theatrics (NYC) and The Sherman. My work has been produced at: The Barbican, The Other Room, The Sherman, Wales Millennium Centre, Chapter Arts, Theatre 503, The Arcola, TACT Studio (Broadway NYC), The Arches, Bridewell Theatre London, Martin E Segal Theater (NYC). I have developed work with The Traverse, The Sherman and The Young Vic.
I co-run Illumine Theatre with director Zoë Waterman. Our first production - of my play 2023 - opened to rave reviews in October, 2018.
I have spoken on various panels regarding feminism and theatre and also science and theatre, notably giving a talk for TEDx. I have written for The Guardian on theatre and have also been a contributor discussing the Welsh arts scene for BBC Radio 4.
An interview with me talking about my practice and the Theatre Uncut award can be found here.
