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'.


In 2014, Vickie has written new plays for Hightide, Theatre Royal Portsmouth and worked as a writer-on-attachment at the Royal Court. For TV, she is currently working on an original drama with the BBC in-house as part of their Drama Writers Scheme. 

Her work is published by Methuen Drama.
