Harriet Madeley

Writer/Producer

Represented by:

Sarah Williams

Harriet’s work explores intimate experiences at the heart of extreme situations and often centralises queer culture, criminal justice and mental/physical health. Her distinctive brand of verbatim drama has been produced at The Lowry, Theatre Clwyd, Soho Theatre, Stratford East, Northern Stage, BBC Radio 4, and in prisons & psychiatric institutions across the UK. 

The Spectator said of her debut play The Listening Room: “You emerge with your consciousness altered, your conception of human beings elevated and amplified… A painful, shocking, vital, uplifting experience. Quite unforgettable”.  The Listening Room was adapted for radio with National Prison Radio/BBC Radio 4, and nominated for an ARIA in 2020. Her most recent radio drama, The Other Tchaikovsky, was shortlisted for a BBC Audio Drama Award in 2021. 

Harriet is currently developing a number of projects for screen and is under commission from Battersea Arts Centre with her theatre company Crowded Room, with whom she was shortlisted for the Oxford Samuel Beckett Theatre Trust Award at the Barbican in 2018.
