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. Earlier in 2020, Jenny returned to the stage to play the roles of Boudica and Elizabeth I with physical theatre co, Trestle, with a further recorded performance scheduled when Covid restrictions allow. Please check back over the coming months for more details!
