Biography

Vickie is a playwright and writer for TV and radio.

Her 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, the Mercury Theatre and the Royal Court as a writer-on-attachment.

She has written an original drama for television with Natalie Mitchell for The Forge, and a radio play, The Gift, for BBC Radio 4.

Her work is published by Methuen Drama.
