Hello and welcome to Clare Reddaway’s writing website. I write scripts, short stories and the occasional article. I live in Bath.
I love stories: writing them, reading them, listening to them, eavesdropping on them.
I like stories as a form of performance. I’ve read my stories to anyone who will
listen at events and festivals around the south of England, for years. I also write
plays, a different version of story-
I believe that stories are the bedrock of being human and I find creating, tangling and untangling them a source of constant fascination.
Most of my activities reflect this story-
Recently, I have been fortunate to have had a number of plays on stage around the country. All of these plays have a strong narrative backbone, but often play with theatricality and form.
In the past I worked for the BBC and Granada Television as a script editor and drama development executive and for independent production companies as a documentary researcher and producer. This took me to a variety of places: Sao Paulo… Birmingham … Soho… I have worked in a College of Engineering in Zhengzhou in central China, at a radio station in Hong Kong and in a homeless hostel in Bath amongst many other places. I have an MA in Creative Writing from Bath Spa University.
