Playwright Steph Smith - Originally from a small village near Stirling in Scotland, Smith studied Drama and Theatre Arts (with a specialism in directing) at Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh. Stef has worked as both an individual artist and with other theatre makers. Her work is predominately political seeking to unearth unheard stories and it always aims to examine both the lightness and darkness of life. Stef loves traveling and in the past few years she has traveled to Australia, Brazil, Canada, Germany, Korea, Turkey and the USA for her work. Stef has also led creative writing groups for young people, ran writing workshops in Brazil and given lectures at Glasgow University.
Most notably in 2012 Stef won an Olivier for the show RoadKill. In 2013 she was invited for a residency to the Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada and in 2015 Stef was also made an Associate Artist at the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh. She also appeared on The Lists Top 100 Cultural Contributors for 2015 and was named by the Independent as a part of a 'new generation of British playwrights who will dominate 2017.’
She lives with her partner and their two cats. She splits her time between Glasgow, Leeds and London.
