Ella primarily works as a playwright and screenwriter, making projects for theatre, film, TV and radio. She also writes the occasional poem. She’s been a proud resident at Vivid Studios since November 2019.
Ella came to scriptwriting through training as an actor. She still acts sometimes if you ask nicely, but rather likes the process of making stuff herself!
Ella is currently working with the Bush Theatre, Almeida Theatre, Hampstead Theatre and Theatre Royal Plymouth, and has screen projects in development with Element Pictures and Drama Republic. For all things writing and acting Ella is represented at United Agents (https://www.unitedagents.co.uk/ella-road)
Between battling scripts and chasing deadlines Ella can normally be found running, and campaigning for arts advocacy. Ella is part of The Good Night Out Reading Group, a socialist collective which observes, discusses and challenges the power structures at place in the arts. She is also part of the London Theatre Consortium’s Climate Lab, looking at how we can move to making theatre more sustainably.
As well as nurturing her professional procrastination skills, Ella is using her time during lockdown to develop some long term film projects.
