Sketches, plays, etc
Emma’s written satire, sketches, radio plays, theatre plays and a sitcom. As ever, she has a lot of material in development.
Emma was the first female performer in BBC Radio 4’s hit sketch show ‘The Now Show.’ She wrote a range of sketches and monologues for the show. A highlight was her extraordinary impression of David Beckham… During the four series she worked on ‘The Now Show,’ Emma worked alongside comedians including Steve Punt, Hugh Dennis, Mackenzie Crook, Al Murray, Simon Munnery, Peter Serafinowicz, Marcus Brigstocke and Dave Gorman.
Emma’s play ‘Shaft’ was performed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe to critical acclaim. It was co-written with Mike Woodhead. Later, it was adapted for radio and was broadcast on BBC Radio 4. It’s about two strangers getting stuck in a lift, and the dark secrets they’re desperate to hide.
Emma wrote ‘Mummyfication’ after the birth of her first child. It’s a comedy-drama about how women have to become a whole new version of themselves when they have a child. How do you learn how to be yourself as a mother? And what does that do to your sense of identity? This play was broadcast on BBC Radio 4 and was featured on ‘Pick of the Week.’
Emma’s sitcom ‘Share And Share Alike’ was written for BBC Radio 4 and was about a group of pensioners from Cheadle who set up an investment club. The series starred names such as Michael Angelis, Roy Barraclough, Bridget Forsyth and Derek Griffiths.
