Playwrights:
At the heart of everything we do

Luke Norris

Luke’s latest play, SO HERE WE ARE, debuted at High Tide Festival in September 2015 before transferring to Manchester Royal Exchange. It won a Bruntwood Judges Award and was nominated for two Manchester Theatre Awards.

His professional debut GOODBYE TO ALL THAT was performed at the Royal Court Jerwood and was widely acclaimed; the Telegraph commented that ‘we’re in the presence, unquestionably, of a playwright of major promise’. His next performed work was HEARTS for NT Connections, which played at the Sheffield Crucible and the Shed Theatre at the National.

In 2014 Luke was commissioned to write a play by Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and Paines Plough, out of which came GROWTH. It was performed in Cardiff in March before transferring to the Gate in April 2015.

He is currently under commission to The Bush Theatre, London, and is writing a new radio play for BBC Radio 4.
