Sophie Ivatts

I want more people to have a voice through drama, be that by finding self-confidence in a theatre workshop, or seeing themselves represented on television. I write and direct theatre productions; I devise and run learning workshops; I scout for and develop the boldest new writing for TV drama.

How the Fellowship impacted me

I realised I didn't have to choose between making my own work and enabling others' work.

How I am using my skills for change

I hope to contribute to more diverse and inclusive career models in theatre. We need to talk about the systemic problems with freelancing.
