Jenny Ayres - Writer and Actress
Jenny's career, as both a professional scriptwriter and actress, continues to be shaped by her diverse range of work across stage, screen and print.
Jenny's play, Glimpse, completed a successful run at London's Jermyn Street Theatre in 2018 (receiving 4 star reviews and publication by Oberon Books, as part of 'Tomorrow at Noon') and Trouble and Strife, a WW2 play for a female ensemble, is also available from Unthank Books as part of 'Words and Women 2'.
Working as an actress, Jenny has played many roles from the comic to the tragic. Jenny's on screen appearance as The Collector, in sci-fi pilot Ultimate Adventure, was screened at the Prince of Wales Cinema, Leicester Square (2017) and her co-written short film, Runners (in which she played lead), was the only UK short to reach the finals of 'Disney's Star Wars Fan Film Competition' in 2016. And 2020 will see Jenny return to the stage to perform with Trestle Theatre Co as a well-known historic figure...More details in the new year!
