Ollie George Clark.
I am a writer for stage and screen. I’ve recently been made an inaugural BAFTA Connect Writing member for 2022/23 and won the British Comedy Guide Spring Sitcom Competition 2022 with my script Cuttings.
While I’ve had nominations for the BAFTA Rocliffe TV Writing Award, the Liverpool Hope Playwriting Prize and the David Nobbs Memorial Comedy Award.
I am currently under commission from TOD Productions for the development of an original TV series. As well as a new play for the Hampstead Theatre and an original BBC Radio Four comedy.
My first play ‘Cuttings’, which ran in 2019, is to be revived in 2023. The original run played to five-star reviews and was nominated for the Liverpool Royal Court Playwriting Prize. My TV adaption of ‘Cuttings’ was recently longlisted for the David Nobbs Memorial Comedy Award 2022 and won the British Comedy Guide Sitcom Competition.
My play ‘Butterfly’ is being produced by Jake Orr Productions in Winter 2023. And my play, ‘Troy Story’ premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe 2022.
I have been a member of both the Hampstead Theatre Inspire Course and the Almeida Young Writers Programme.
Other past theatre credits include: Those We Exile (Almedia Theatre), Coconuts (Lyric Hammersmith), The Strictly Curse (Southwark playhouse) and Warm and Chewy (Old Red Lion Theatre).
My play Cuttings also continued online during the pandemic, as I wrote satirical Zoom sketches imagining the characters writing the speeches of political figures like Boris Johnson, Dominic Cummings and Michael Gove. The videos have appeared in the British Comedy Guide, on BBC Radio London and BBC Radio Essex and have recently been added to the British Comedy Guide:
