About

This marvellously inventive show… Annie Siddons’ script is almost Shakespearian in its mix of the earthy and ethereal, the funny and the frightening ***** Robert Hewison Sunday Times, RAPUNZEL

Annie Siddons - Playwright Performer

I am a London based and raised playwright and performer.

As a playwright, I have worked with Kneehigh, Labyrinth, Blind Summit, BAC, QEH, New Victory Theater, Creation, First Circle, Teater Sagohuset, Bristol Old Vic, Gate Theatre, National Theatre Studio, Unicorn Theatre, amongst others. My version of Rapunzel was the Citizens’ Theatre Christmas Show 2015.

As a writer/performer I’ve made two shows – Raymondo and How (Not) to Live in Suburbia, and I’m currently developing a third, Dennis of Penge.

My shows aim to be playful, dark, funny, honest and uplifting. Mainly they have language, narrative and music at their root and heart. I like to work collaboratively and alone in a variety of settings.

I have some trusted collaborators – Justin Audibert, director, Nicki Hobday, performer/director, Adam Robertson, performer/technician, Jen Smethurst, producer/fixer, Andy Purves, lighting mage. I am always very excited to collaborate with new people, so if you have seen my work and like it, and would like to have a conversation with me about how we might work together, particularly if you are a – performer, composer,musician, designer, sound designer, animator, digital artist, or multimillionaire arts benefactor – please get in touch.
