In the overcrowded city, nature is getting out of control. The mice are scratching between walls, the pigeons are diseased and the foxes are beginning to rule the streets. The problem is growing. It’s contagious. It has to be stopped, before it’s too late. «People can get used to terrible things. Very quickly. If they have to. It doesn’t take much for things to start to fall apart.»

Originally from a small village near Stirling in Scotland, Stef studied Drama and Theatre Arts (with a specialism in directing) at Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh. Stef has worked as both an individual artist and with other theatre makers. Her work is predominately political seeking to unearth unheard stories and it always aims to examine both the lightness and darkness of life. Stef loves traveling and in the past few years she has visited Australia, Brazil, Canada, Germany, India, Korea, Mexico, Turkey and the USA for her work. Stef has also led creative writing groups for young people in India, ran writing workshops in Brazil and given lectures at Glasgow University.
Most notably in 2012 Stef won an Olivier for the show “RoadKill”. In 2013 she was invited for a residency to the Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada. She also appeared on The Lists Top 100 Cultural Contributors for 2015 and was named by the Independent as a part of a ‘new generation of British playwrights who will dominate 2017‘. In 2020, she was a finalist for the worlds biggest prize for female playwrights. Two years later she won Best Writer at the Royal Television Society Awards for her young adult series “Float”.
