About Us

At least 50% of theatre is visual but playwrights are seldom considered to write the visuals so much as the words actors speak. In Oliver's career he has written a play without words. He has written for puppets. When he writes radio drama, he is always thinking about what the audience will see. Using his own work and practice as a starting point, Oliver will discuss what it is to write for the stage and radio, about how story can be carried visually, and about what it is like to see a 10-foot dragon come to life.

Oliver Emanuel is an internationally award-winning playwright based in Scotland. He has written over 30 plays for both stage and radio, and is also Reader in Playwriting at the University of St Andrews and an Associate Playwright at the Playwright Studio Scotland. Oliver is currently working on the third instalment of 'The 306: Trilogy' and new work for BBC Radio 4.

The Truth About Hawaii won Best Audio Drama at the ISNTD Festival 2018. Flight won a Herald Angel at the Edinburgh International Festival 2017; and has recently completed a three-month New York Times Critic's Pick run at the McKittrick Hotel, New York. Oliver was a lead writer on 'Emile Zola: Blood, Sex & Money' for BBC Radio 4 which won Best Adaptation at the BBC Audio Drama Awards 2017. His English language version of Jan Sobrie's Titus won The People's Choice Victor Award at IPAY 2015. Dragon was the first play for young people to be performed at the Edinburgh International Festival and won Best Show for Children at the UK Theatre Awards in 2014.
