Hi, I’m Shireen and I like to make things in lots of different ways.
I’ve worked in London, regionally and internationally, creating work for audiences of all ages. My plays include: 39 and Counting (Park Theatre & Oxford School of Drama, 2021), The Rise & Fall (Somerset House, 2017), Soon Until Forever (Theatre503, 2013), Same Same (fanSHEN & Ovalhouse 2011), Nameless (Arnolfini Theatre, 2010). Same Same was translated into Italian by the British Council and presented in Puglia, Italy (2012), it was also shortlisted for the Royal National Theatre Foundation Playwriting Award, formerly the Meyer Whitworth Award (2013). I co-authored Why Is The Sky Blue? (Southwark Playhouse, 2018) which was been nominated for two Off West End Awards. I co-authored You don’t need to make a Big Song and Dance about it for the National Theatre’s Connections Festival 2021. I was also writer for Secret Cinema’s 2022 show.
I was an Associate Artist at both Ovalhouse (2013) and Nottle Theatre, South Korea (2011). I was playwright-on-attachment at the Royal Court (2010). I am an Associate Artist with fanSHEN Theatre Company with whom I’ve created numerous works (most recently Lists for The End of The World, Summerhall 2017). I also lecture at London South Bank University on the Drama and Performance MA and BA.
