“[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.” – Roger Barrington, 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” – Taylor Edmonds, 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” – Chiara Strazzulla, Art Scene in Wales on 2023.
Hello! Thanks for visiting my website.
My play The Merthyr Stigmatist will be staged at The Sherman October 2-17, 2020 as a co-production with Theatre Uncut. BBC News has called it "surely 2020's best premise for a play". Click here to book. I'm also one of Theatr Clwyd's writers in residence for 2020.
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. I am represented by Micheline Steinberg Associates.
