Nathan Lucky Wood – England

Nathan is a playwright and youth worker based in London. For the past few years he has combined his career as a playwright with working at a London homelessness charity; but he
has recently been awarded a grant by the Peggy Ramsay foundation, and will be leaving his job in December to focus on my writing. He is using some of this money to undertake a
residency at Stiwdio Maelor which appeals particularly as the play he is currently working on, Slatehead, is set in Snowdonia.

His work is usually politically engaged and contemporary, interested in experimenting with theatrical form and staying balanced on the sharp point where comedy falls into tragedy, or vice versa.
His last play A Haunting, premiered at the King’s Head before transferring to the Vault Festival and the Belgrade, Coventry.

Here are some quotes from the reviews:
“a play of multi-layered complexity” – **** LondonTheatre1

“a damn fine play …. probably the best thing I’ve seen at Vault Festival thus far”

“The riveting, mesmerising A Haunting is without a doubt the highlight of the 2017
VAULT festival to date… it is not just better than most new writing but better than
most full productions full-stop.”
