Alecky is a playwright and actor.
In 2003, Alecky set up Recorded Delivery (Verbatim Theatre Company). The term 'recorded delivery' has now become synonymous with the verbatim technique she employs.

In 2007 she was selected as one of Screen International's Stars of Tomorrow following A Man In a Box for Channel 4.
In July 2009, Alecky's play The Girlfriend Experience transferred from the Royal Court to the Young Vic. In 2010 she teamed up with the National Theatre Studio and Rustaveli Theatre Tbilisi to make Do We Look Like Refugees?!, originally produced in Georgia before going to the Assembly Rooms and winning a Fringe First Award at the Edinburgh Festival 2010.
London Road, which she co-authored with composer Adam Cork, won Best Musical at the Critics' Circle Awards and was revived in 2012 at the National Theatre in the Olivier after its sellout in the Cottesloe in 2011.
Alecky was alsoinvolved in Headlong Theatre's production of Decade. More recently Where Have Been All My Life? was produced at the New Vic Theatre in April 2012 and she co-wrote Friday Night Sex for the Royal Court's Open Court Season with Michael Wynne.
