Adaptations are new plays too.

Helen Edmundson, award-winning playwright and screenwriter

In 2005, inspired and encouraged by the award-winning writer Helen Edmundson I started to write.

Being fascinated by Edith Wharton’s groundbreaking short novel Summer for many years, I began the process of adapting it into a play. Since its premiere on the London fringe in 2012 – with the text also being published – I have continued to write, focusing on adaptations of classic work.

My second play, Hamlet our brother a one-man, re-imagining of William Shakespeare’s Hamlet from the point of view of the character of Horatio, was premiered on the London fringe in 2016.

I’m currently in development with my third play Stella, a stage adaptation of a short story by Anais Nin.
