THE TEAM

She has worked in the UK, Canada, Tanzania and across Europe and continues to push the ideas of exploration in theatre and the development of new work.

MEGAN JENKINS
Associate Writer

Megan has worked professionally as an actor, singer, director and writer since graduating from The Musical Theatre Academy in 2014. She has appeared in several classical theatre productions (Romeo and Juliet 2014, The Comedy or Errors 2015), theatre in education tours (Network 2015 -2016, Exposed 2017) and musicals (Cool Rider 2014, One Way Ticket 2015). Her award nominated debut play, A Working Title toured the UK in 2016.

She enjoys wine of any colour, talking to strangers and, weirdly, interior design magazines. She finds writing about herself in third person a bit awkward.
