Tamara is a writer, performer and theatre-maker in London who hails from Vancouver, Canada. Her shows foreground lesser-known women’s and Jewish stories to help us see the past, present and future in new ways. Her new solo show, HOLOCAUST BRUNCH, is in development and will premiere at the 2019 Chutzpah! Festival, Vancouver. Through theatre – a live, communal experience in a world which often divides and separates us – she strives to encourage collective healing and solidarity.
Her previous shows include A SECRET LIFE (Theatre503), WINK THE OTHER EYE (Hackney Showroom), WHAT YOU’RE MISSING (Chutzpah! Festival / King’s Head), CABIN FEVER (Bush Theatre) and FANTASMAGORIANA (Edinburgh Fringe). Her work has been nominated by the Jessie Richardson Awards, longlisted by the BBC Writersroom and awarded the Lucy Cavendish College Alumnae Award for Contribution to the Arts. She is a graduate of the Royal Central School of Speech & Drama and Yale and Cambridge universities.
