Biography

Vickie is a young playwright from Essex whose debut full-length play, Mudlarks, was developed through High Tide's Escalator Programme and produced by The Bush, following its premiere at the 2012 High Tide Festival. The play garnered wide spread critical acclaim. In Lyn Gardner’s words the play ‘sings with promise’ and Libby Purves described it as "stunning... unforgettable".

Vickie has also collaborated with Theatre Royal Portsmouth and the Royal Court as a writer-on-attachment. She is working on a new play.

For TV, she has worked with Kudos and is writing an original drama with the BBC in-house as part of their Drama Writers' Scheme. 

Her work is published by Methuen Drama.
