Hannah Grimston, BA Creative Studies
My name is Hannah Grimston. During my time at Bangor University I was President of the Film Society and part of the Bangor English Dramatic Society. I will begin a Masters degree in playwriting at Goldsmiths University this coming academic year.
My work: Despite doing a degree that allowed me to experiment in a number of fields, I quickly found a love for play writing in particular, with Sarah Kane being one of my biggest inspirations. In my three years at Bangor I wrote three plays, as well as a number of short theatrical pieces for my degree. I endeavour to create theatre which explores dark topics in a poetic and beautiful way.
