Phil Davies

Nick Hern Books

“Remarkably potent…What's remarkable about Davies's writing is how little it hectors and how lifelike it feels. It’s angry, it's witty, it makes degradation vivid and infuriating.” —The Times

Tia’s mouthy attitude and confident swagger mask the vulnerability in a fourteen-year-old girl whose tough start in life draws her to AJ. Older, good-looking and charismatic, he shows her a kindness that she’s never known. Kindness that comes with a price...

Phil Davies’ debut play premiered at Hampstead Downstairs, London, in 2015, in a production directed by Edward Hall.

Phil Davies trained at the Royal Court Young Writers Programme where he developed his first script, Adjusted, which won the Rod Hall Memorial Award and gained him an attachment with Paines Plough. Other work includes short play How To Not Murder (Arcola Theatre, dir. Ned Bennett); Up the Dale (Royal Exchange Theatre and Queen Elizabeth Hall for Paines Plough); Adjusted (Interplay Europe, Utrecht) and The Makings (ATG, dir. Sarah Dickinson). He has worked alongside Synergy Theatre Project developing scripts with inmates at Feltham Young Offenders Institution, as well as teaching in a secondary school in South East London.
