Poppy Pedder is a scriptwriter, theatre-maker and workshop leader based in London.


Poppy's work is playful, conceptual, dark and surreal. Her biggest creative influences are the dreamlike visual worlds of Beardsley, Dali and Bosch. Although their work is beautiful, what fascinates Poppy most is the underbelly of alienation, horror and carnality underneath the surface - and all done with a humorous touch. These influences hold all the elements that Poppy's work celebrates; compelling visual worlds, nods to the horror of the human condition, and at times just being very very silly. 

Outside of her own projects, Poppy has also collaborated with various theatre companies as a co-creator, writer and dramaturg, bringing her unique perspective to every project. Collaborators include Guttersnipe Theatre, FLINCH Productions, Chris White, Bigger Picture Productions and Relish Theatre. 

Grateful for the support of...
