Margaret is a playwright whose debut play PORCELAIN was picked from the unsolicited script submissions pile and produced by the Abbey Theatre, Dublin, in February/March 2018. She subsequently adapted the play for BBC Radio 4, where it was shortlisted for Best Audio Drama at the Prix Marulic 2019.

Her second play COLLAPSIBLE won an Origin Award for Outstanding New Work at Vault Festival 2019.

It opens at the Bush Theatre in February 2020.

She has previously been part of Soho Writers Lab, The Royal Court Young Writers Programme and Barbican Young Poets and was a member of the Royal Court Supergroup 2019, led by Alice Birch and Alistair McDowell. She is currently under commission at The Bush and The Yard Theatre.
