Sam Burns
Come To Where I'm From

Writer

In early 2009, Sam Burns was invited onto a five-week writing course at Sherman Cymru following the submission of an unsolicited play. This led to the creation of a full length piece, Not the Worst Place, which was shortlisted for the Susan Smith Blackburn award in 2011. In 2010 Sam completed Sherman Cymru’s Advanced Writers’ Programme and in April 2012 she spent a week scribbling and deleting in Sherman Cymru’s writing room.

Produced work includes a monologue in Paines Plough’s COME TO WHERE I'M FROM (July 2010), ‘Two Bears’ for SIXTY-SIX BOOKS at the Bush Theatre (October 2011) and ‘Amnesty’ for AGENT 160 PRESENTS AGENT 160 (February 2012).
