Actress, Theatre Maker, Playwright and Author.
Founder of Run The World.
Thanks for visiting my site. Take a look around to find information about myself, my career, updates on projects I’m working on, and any upcoming events.
Hello, I’m Manjeet. I’ve worked as an actress for many years and about five years ago I started writing and producing my own work. As an actress I’ve worked up and down the country touring plays and filming bits of TV and Film as well as a stint on the radio drama company.
As a writer I spent a year as an associate artist with The Birmingham Repertory Theatre and the Soho Writers Lab.
I was commissioned by The Birmingham Rep and Women and Theatre to write for Starting Out. A collection of five monologues, which ran at The Birmingham Rep and Hackney Showrooms. Starting Out is currently being recorded as a podcast and will be published in 2019.
My debut play Flying Solo, a one woman show toured the UK 2015-2017 and my second play A Dangerous Woman toured nationally 2017-2018.
I wrote a short comedy film for BBC writers room and I’m working on doing a bit more.
I founded an organisation called Run The World which is a not for profit that uses sport and theatre as a means to empower women and girls. You can find out more here:
Oh and I’m writing books. The first one is out March 2020 with Penguin!

British Council Artist Development Programme
I'm so excited to announce that I am one of 8 artists who will take part in this year's Artist Development Programme as part of the British Council's Edinburgh Showcase, alongside the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
This programme is a professional development opportunity aiming to encourage diversity in performing arts.
As part of the programme we will gain special access to the Edinburgh Showcase, to see shows and to learn what works and what doesn't work in Edinburgh. We will meet artists who have had successful runs at the Fringe and attend professional development sessions and meet international programmers. I can't wait!
My debut novel is to be published by Penguin in March 2020! I can not wait to share Ambers story with the world. Watch this space!
