Rachel’s most recent play, CIRCLES, for which she won the Pearson Award to write, and won the Catherine Johnson Award from Channel 4, transferred to the Tricycle Theatre in London after a sell out run at Birmingham Rep.
Her play ROUTES opened Vicky Featherstone's first season at the Royal Court in September 2013. For this Rachel won the Charles Wintour Award for Most Promising Playwright at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards 2013. It followed her debut, THE WESTBRIDGE, which was also produced at the Royal Court Theatre and went on to win the 2012 Writers Guild Award for best play as well as coming joint first for the 2011 Alfred Fagon Award. Her afternoon play, CARNIVAL, aired on BBC Radio Four August 2013 and was repeated September 2015.
In television, Rachel wrote an episode of KIRI for Channel 4 / The Forge. She is currently writing two episodes of THE FEED for Amazon Studios, adapting MR LOVERMAN for Fable Pictures and reteaming with Jack Thorne on THE EDDY for Netflix.
Rachel is also developing feature films with Film4 and BFI.
