Samantha Lyden

Writer

Samantha specialises in writing comedy drama alongside her writing partner Teresa Burns. Both young women from working class backgrounds, they are passionate about bringing these unheard and female-led stories to the screen.

Recent projects include: CURVEBALL, directed by Matt Holt and produced by Colour TV London and PRUNELLA, an underdog story about a young working class woman from a council estate in Luton, daring to escape her lot. Teresa and Samantha will also be filming a series of comedy sketches this summer with Wild Street Productions.

Her foray into writing came back in 2009, when she co-wrote topical comedy, FACEBOOK FABLES, which ran at Edinburgh Festival’s Gilded Balloon, to much critical acclaim. Other stage credits include; IT’S ALL RELATIVE (TR Stratford East)

Samantha has a background in producing and tour booking children’s theatre. She also co-founded her own theatre company, Pigtails Productions in 2016 and is currently producing Polka Theatre’s HOW TO HIDE A LION for a national tour, Autumn 2018. Samantha is also an actress and improvisor.
