Carolyn has written extensively for youth theatre, drawing on her experience and understanding as head of Drama at a vibrant secondary school in Queensland. Carolyn is quietly obsessed with comedy and its ability to dismiss pretense. She is a member of Playlab and ICWP (International Centre for Women Playwrights).
