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 (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 now 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 this year, Jenny returned to the stage to play the roles of Boudica and Elizabeth I with physical theatre co, Trestle, with a further performance scheduled for summer 2020 (Covid-19 restrictions allowing).
