Lydia’s first full-length play Fixer opened at the HighTide Festival in 2009. It was revived at the Oval House in 2011 and is published by Nick Hern Books. Her second, Compliance, was written while she was Pearson playwright in residence at Paines Plough, and won the 2011 Catherine Johnson award for Best Play. Other work has been performed at the Tricycle, Young Vic, Globe, and Oran Mor. She is currently under commission to Birmingham Repertory Theatre.
Lydia’s noir script Necropolis was fourth on the 2008 Brit List, an industry poll of the best unproduced screenplays in the country, and is now under option to Northpoint Pictures and the BFI. Her short film Camouflage aired as part of Channel 4’s Coming Up season in the summer of 2012.
