Kefi Chadwick is a multi-award winning playwright and screenwriter. Her play, Mathematics of the Heart, won Best New Play at the Brighton Festival 2011 and an 'Outstanding Artistic Achievement' award. It transferred to Theatre 503 in London in 2012 and enjoyed a sell-out run and widespread critical praise:
"Smart, diverting little family drama laced with sexual politics...A balance between brittle humour and broody thoughtfulness" The Times
"A poignant and tender love story...as funny as it was moving" The Sunday Times
Other work includes Sexlife, which premiered at the 2012 Edinburgh Festival alongside work from Leo Butler and Pamela Carter as part of NaturalShocks’ Peep and Chat, a short for the Acrola’s Miniaturists season. A new full-length play, Embers, which was first developed as part of the Royal Court’s Writers’ Programme explores the nature of female friendship.
Kefi also writes for the screen and her short film, Cregan, has been screened at the Belfast Film Festival, Soho Rushes, New York Downtown Film Festival Audience Choice Screening, Foyle Film Festival and the Brighton Film Festival. It was also selected by BBC Film Network for broadcast on their website.
Her short fiction has been published internationally and broadcast on BBC Radio 4.
Kefi's short film, Girl Power (produced by Attercop), starring Jason Flemyng, Alice Lowe and Dakota Blue Richards is currently in post production and the short film of her play, SexLife (produced by Chasing the Bear) starring Jemima Rooper and Dylan Edwards is also in post-production.
