Olivier award nominated Isley Lynn leads script writing group for Outside Edge Theatre Company.

Olivier award nominated playwright Isley Lynn will facilitate Outside Edge Theatre Company’s summer intermediate script writing group, Write Two.  For writers excited by the challenge of taking the next step with their output, the group is another example of how the company believe that creative engagement and exploring complex issues through drama can bring about positive change for those affected by addiction.

Isley Lynn won the Charles Wintour Most Promising Playwright Award at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards 2023 for The Swell, which was also nominated for Outstanding Achievement in an Affiliate Theatre at the 2024 Oliviers, as well as Best New Play, Best Director, and Best Production at the 2023 Off West End Awards. Their play Skin A Cat was awarded Pick of the Year at Vault Festival 2016 and nominated for four Off West End Awards for its transfer as inaugural production at The Bunker, before touring nationally.

Isley Lynn comments, I’m thrilled to be working with Outside Edge on Write Two. Making programmes like this accessible to those who wouldn’t ordinarily be able to take part is so important, and their values of using creativity to support recovery are close to my heart. I’m really excited to work with the talented writers they’ve assembled.

Celebrating their 25th anniversary this year, Outside Edge Theatre Company are known for developing cutting edge theatre productions and supporting people affected by addiction through the performing arts. Outside Edge Theatre Company produces theatre about issues related to addiction, from substance misuse to problem gambling, and provides free drama workshops to help support those in recovery and people affected by addiction. 

The Write Two project is a 12-week intermediate writing course that allows participants a fantastic opportunity to take their writing to the next level and create a finished piece of work. Over 12 sessions, Isley will teach different writing skills, exploring topics such as structure, dialogue and character.  Being part of Write Two requires a minimum of three months continuous commitment to one of Outside Edge Theatre Company’s drop-in groups.
