Film, TV & Theatre
Lady Aria Grey is an award-winning writer, drag queen, and comedienne. She moved to the UK in 2017 from South Africa, where she was raised.
After completing an MFA in Writing for Stage and Broadcast Media at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, she won the London Horror Festival Playwriting Competition with her stage play, GREY WIDOW, and subsequently won the Edinburgh TV Festival New Voice Award 2020 for Best Comedy Script with her TV pilot, VAGUE, which she is now developing as a full series. Before she moved to the UK, she was also nominated for three Muse Awards by the Writers Guild of South Africa in the category Best Stage Play, one of which she won, for an almost-musical THE PITCH (co-written with Roland Perold).
As well as writing, she performs herself at drag venues and theatres across London - and sometimes the world - most notably alongside Taylor Mac and Gateau Chocolat in A 24 DECADE HISTORY OF POPULAR MUSIC at the Barbican. Her performances are mostly based in writing, be it standup comedy, stage plays, pantomimes, or live readings of her own short erotic stories. She loves her audiences to think while they laugh.
