Having read Drama at Exeter University, Laura went on to focus on writing for the theatre.  She produced a variety of successful shows, from commissioned children’s plays performed in underground caves, to adult comedy shorts performed at Glastonbury, Lattitude and other UK festivals with her company InTents Theatre.

As a young playwright, she was invited to have her comic duologues read as part of the Chichester Festival Theatre’s summer programmes, and her one act play Planting David also enjoyed a short festival run at the Waterloo East Theatre.

More recently, Laura won The Watermill Theatre’s 'Raising Voices' competition for emerging playwrights, and was subsequently commissioned to write an original piece for over 100 school children to perform. She also dipped her toe into the daunting world of stand up with The Comedy School, Camden, aiming to try and get a handle on what really makes people laugh.

Laura has completed a diploma in Writing and Producing Comedy with the National Film and Television School, and has written on the last two series of Dead Ringers (BBC radio 4). She also recently received a pilot script commission from BBC radio comedy for her fifteen-minute sitcom – Amanda’s Getting Married
