Nyla Levy is a Playwright. Being mixed race, Pakistani and Canadian, with Muslim and Jewish heritage, and born and bred in London - Nyla has always gravitated towards stories that explore experiences related to identity, culture and race.

Nyla began in verbatim, with her first play Different is Dangerous (Amnesty International Freedom of Expression longlist nominee), followed by Normal with a bit of Oomph! Nyla co-founded Two’s Company who went on to tour Different is Dangerous to venues including, Theatre 503, Nottingham Playhouse, The Lowry and Edinburgh Fringe. Nyla received funding from Arts Council England to develop her first fictional play, Does My Bomb Look Big in This? Which was performed at The Bush, JW3, Hat Factory & Rich Mix.

Tamasha are currently supporting Nyla to produce a UK tour of Does My Bomb Look Big in This? Venues include Soho Theatre and Tara Arts. Nyla recently storylined ideas for Channel 4’s Ackley Bridge Series 3.
