Eva Hudson is a writer, director, producer and performer based between Bristol and London. A recent First-Class English Literature graduate from University College London (UCL), she has written, directed and performed in plays which have been staged at theatres including Arcola, Dalston, Ustinov Studios, Bath, The Camden People’s Theatre, Alma Tavern, Bristol, The Mission Theatre, Bath, The Cockpit, Marylebone and The Edinburgh Fringe Festival. She is co-founder of Berwick Street Theatre Workshop, a new-writing production company based in London.
Eva’s work carves out space for young women to roar and rage. Her first play Monday’s Girl, explores communities of culpability in the fall-out of the first ever school shooting in the US, which was committed by a sixteen-year old girl. It was optioned by Drink the Ink! after strong feedback from The Royal Court and Theatre503. Her second, DREAMPHONE, was partly inspired by The Magdalene Laundries scandal in Ireland, and won the UCL Arts Award. It was subsequently performed at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival where she performed in, directed and produced the play.
Eva is currently writing a new version of Thomas Middleton and Thomas Dekker’s The Roaring Girl (1611) which embraces the blurriness, individuality, and forward-thinking of the original text, and is set backstage of an illegal drag show in 2023. Coming from a literary background, she has a particular interest in adapting lesser known early modern and classical texts for modern audiences, and is looking for collaborators.
Eva has also previously interned at film production company The Ink Factory (The Little Drummer Girl, The Night Manager), on set of Sex Education and at Raindance Film Festival.
