Om forfatteren

Julia Thurston is an American/Canadian actor and playwright originally from New York City, now based in London. She graduated with a BA in Acting from LIPA in 2018 and an MA in Acting from GSA in 2022. Paved with Gold and Ashes was Julia’s first play, which she began writing in 2016 as an acting student at LIPA after years of fascination with the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire and the untold stories of its victims. An early version of Paved with Gold and Ashes was performed at LIPA in 2018, and the play was first produced by Threedumb Theatre in 2019 at the Tristan Bates Theatre for Six Plays One Day. It has since been performed at the Old Red Lion Theatre and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe (Threedumb Theatre, 2023) and the Barons Court Theatre (Threedumb Theatre, 2024). Julia’s other writing credits include Darling, it’s Not About You, co-written by Julia Thurston and Sof Puchley (Bee in My Beanie, 2019 & Threedumb Theatre, 2020), as well as several plays which were workshopped and performed during her time at LIPA and GSA, including Impressions (LIPA 24-Hour Play Festival, 2017) My Own Estimation (Barewater Productions, 2018), and Never Lost, Never Found (GSA, 2021).
