Morgan Lloyd Malcolm

Morgan is a playwright and screenwriter.

Her play Belongings was produced at the Hampstead Theatre and Trafalgar Studios in 2011 to universal acclaim and was shortlisted for The Charles Wintour Most Promising Playwright Award. This was followed in 2015 by another hit play at Hampstead Theatre, The Wasp, which also transferred to Trafalgar Studios.

Other stage work includes commissions for the Old Vic, Clean Break and Firehouse Productions.  She has co-written several acclaimed immersive site-specific plays with Katie Lyons, produced by Look Left Look Right, was part of the writing team for four of the Lyric Hammersmith’s pantomimes from 2009-2012 and wrote (solo) the Bolton Octagon’s Christmas plays for 2013 and 2014.

She is also currently under commission from Plymouth Drum, Soho Theatre, Royal Shakespeare Company/Clean Break Theatre and Hampstead Theatre.

In 2016 Morgan was selected for the BBC TV Drama Writers Programme and commissioned to write a 60 minute original television drama by BBC Scotland. She has also been commissioned by Little House Productions to write on a screenplay project and is also working on a film adaption of The Wasp.

Morgan’s play Emilia was the first original commission by Michelle Terry as the new Artistic Director of Shakespeare’s Globe. Based on the life of the largely forgotten Elizabethan poet Emilia Bassano, Emilia opened to rave reviews in August 2018 becoming a word of mouth smash hit, selling out of both tickets and playtexts.
