About Lisa

Here’s a little bit about me … Lisa Edwards

 

I’ve been writing for D C Thomson / Egmont Ehapa’s Wendy title since May 2010. It isn’t published in the UK, as girls’ comics sort of died out in Britain during the 1980s and 1990s, but it’s sold in Europe, mainly in Germany (I don’t write in German – the words in the balloons get translated) where it’s really popular and has lots of merchandise, such as this cuddly horse:

I was thrilled to be a finalist in the Stratford-upon-Avon Fringe Festival short play competition 2012. My entry, The Confetti Job, was performed at The Attic Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon on 6th June 2012, and a recording of it can be seen below. It was a double-first-attempt for me – theatre and comedy – so I was really happy to come away with this cute little trophy:

Through a series of improbable events, a low budget horror feature that I wrote – Siren Song – has made it all the way through to being a produced entity that actually exists.

This is a performance of my short stage play, The Confetti Job, which has been clipped from the livestream of the Stratford-upon-Avon Fringe Festival’s International Short Play Competition 2012, where I was a finalist. Sound and camera are a bit dodgy, so be warned 🙂
