Julie McNamara 2020

Julie McNamara

Julie McNamara was born in Merseyside in the UK – a child born to rebellious Catholic and Protestant parents, which put her in the role of clown and peacemaker. She hated school, but is a testament to the fact that early academic performance bears little consequence on adult life. As a young adult she was attracted to the theatre and performance and had a life changing experience working and living in an asylum for 2 years. It became an impetus for a lot of her future theatre work. She has written written 15 plays, 4 films – gaining 3 awards in 2018, and is the current Founder and artistic director of Vital Xposure – a disability-led theatre company working in social justice.
