Hannah Leigh-Prior


Hannah’s writing career began with sketch comedy both on screen and in London Theatres. In 2016, she debuted her dark comedy KLEPTO at the Southwark Playhouse. A collaboration with director and producer Thembisa Cochrane and producer Lisa Jacobi led to her writing and starring in short film KISSING ALL THE FISH, which appeared at festivals in London and South Africa in 2016. Together they formed Electric Fish Films, a London based collaborative with a mission to create dynamic character driven stories using a collective female voice. Hannah has written and directed several short films, including comedy-drama FAYDE featuring Yasmine Akram, which premiered at Underwire Film Festival 2019 and was nominated for Best Screenplay.

Hannah is currently working with Upperroom Productions developing several TV pilots, as well as collaborating on her first feature film, coming of age horror MANTIS.
