Marjorie Morgan

Marjorie H Morgan is an award winning playwright, director and producer based in Liverpool. Her works explore the theme of ‘Home,’ in particular historic and contemporary migration stories, giving voice to those marginalised in British society. In 2018 she was shortlisted for the Kenneth Branagh Drama Writing Award for Let The Eat Cake, and has since undertaken playwright programmes at The Everyman Playhouse and SLATE.

As the writer-in-residence for the Liverpool Independents Biennial Marjorie wrote The Thin Red Line in 2018, which was performed at Hope Street Theatre, Liverpool as a response to Banu Cenneto─člu’s public arts installation The List. The script was constructed through verbatim words of the refugees and asylum seekers in Europe.

Supplementary to her theatre work Marjorie has also written articles and essays for a wide range of magazines on film, black LGBTQIA+ issues and borders, including The Guardian, gal-dem, red pepper, ROOT-ed magazine and Cinema Femme.

For her Time and Space residency Marjorie will be developing and workshopping a programme of plays with members of the refugee and migrant communities in Liverpool, and actors and directors for a performance in June 2020 for the Refugee Week.
