Kay Thomason-Vardy of Nottingham studied Drama in the Community at university. Shortly after graduation, her first work, a teen novel, The Anecdotal Drama Teen, was published in 2012. Kay now concentrates on writing one acts or full-length dramas to order for a local troupe, mostly females. This has been appreciated through sell out shows and money raising opportunities for several different charities over the years.

Kay writes to entertain and engage, using comedy, drama and tragedy to heighten the impact of her stories as these often include hard-hitting subjects. When working with Kay, many have been able to face and make sense of difficult topics whilst having fun and escaping from those realities at the same time.

All of Kay’s plays and stories are born from experience, whether that be direct or indirect. Kay can intertwine her own and other’s reality into her scripts without anyone really knowing which is which. It has been commented how real and conversational the dialogue is to the actors during read-throughs.

Along with the joys and challenges of being a full-time mother and homemaker, Kay is able to continue to write and perform locally in her town of Mansfield.
