Hello! I’m a playwright and screenwriter, I’ve worked in theatre, film and TV and I’ve also workshopped and created plays using the headphone verbatim technique. I’m especially interested in female driven stories about compelling female protagonists. My commissions include a play for an actor inspired by her true story, Can You Hear Me Running? (Pleasance Theatre), a short VR film Utopia6 (Breaking Fourth) and a play for young people, Whalesong. I enjoy connecting with new creatives and working collaboratively. Please use the contact form to get in touch or find me on socials @jjoharper. Thanks for visiting!
