Uma Nada-Rajah is appointed Traverse Theatre's 2021 Writer in Residence
Writer Uma Nada-Rajah, who also works as a staff nurse with NHS Scotland, has been appointed as the Traverse’s 2021 Writer in Residence. Her most recent work with the Traverse was the 2020 audio play THE WATERCOOLER, which addressed racial tensions in the workplace, and she is a graduate of the Traverse’s Young Writers programme.
Throughout her residency, Uma will develop two new plays examining pressing issues in contemporary society. Extracts of each piece will subsequently be presented to audiences as work-in-progress sharings – whether in person in the Traverse’s physical theatre space, or in their digital venue, Traverse 3.
