Paula Varjack

Writer, filmmaker and theatre maker

Paula Varjack is a writer, filmmaker and theatre maker. Her work explores identity, the unsaid, and making the invisible visible. She makes work across disciplines; performance, theatre, documentary and spoken word. Her debut prose & poetry publication Letters I Never Sent to You published by Burning Eye Books explores the sometimes slippery nature of the word “home”, and how love and heartbreak can be felt just as strongly for a place as for a person. Her most recent show “ Show Me The Money” – explores the reality of making a living in the artist in the U.K. based on interviews with artists across the country.  In addition to performing, she facilitates workshops with a wide range of age groups, using writing prompts and drama games to unblock creativity.  Born in Washington D.C. to a Ghanaian mother and a British father, out of they many places she has lived she considers east London to be “home”.
