I was born and raised in England and spent my childhood years writing and directing my own feature films... the sheer obnoxiousness of which is best chronicled here.

Nowadays I live between New York and London writing for musical theatre, and in the last year I have been honoured as Winner of the Eugene O'Neill National Musical Theatre Conference, Finalist for the Kleban Prize for lyricism, the Stiles & Drewe Best New Song Award, and 'Best of the Fest' at New York Theatre Festival.

I'm most interested in writing larger-than-life women who shock, stir and delight, and stories that move and entertain audiences in equal measure.

Other things: I was a member of the Writers Room of the BAFTA-Award-Winning TV series 'Skins', I am the Founder/Director of Spirit YPC, which under my direction has attracted over 100 million online viewers for our MT performances, and I am a graduate of NYU's Musical Theatre Writing program.

The structure of this was all over the place. But rest assured, I am better at writing scripts than I am at writing bios.




New Musical in Development.

This electrifying synth-pop musical uplifts the story of sixteenth-century poet Emilia Bassano: a woman thought by many to be the subject of Shakespeare’s ‘Dark Lady’ sonnets, and theorized by some to be the true, uncredited author of Shakespeare’s plays.

The Dark Lady brings this “what if” scenario to life in an audacious and joyful celebration of theatre.

Written by Sophie Boyce & Veronica Mansour.

New Musical in Development.

Inspired by true events, this is the story of the Forty Elephants; London's notorious all-woman crime-ring.

Much like it's leading ladies, this musical is irreverent, raunchy and unapologetic. It's a show that celebrates women's rights... but even more so, women's wrongs.

Written by Sophie Boyce & Einar Adalsteinsson.

I'm based in New York and London and I like chats over wine or coffee or zoom.
