Works with Afonica
The Teachings of Smart Town
One Five Seven Years

Marietta Kirkbride is a writer and theatre-make. Her work often explores faith, belief and the fault lines between evidence and experience. For radio she has written The Teachings of Smart Town for Afonica (the second episode of our 5 x 28 series Angst!) as well as One Five Series Years and Spores – 5 x 28 series for BBC Radio 4 and BBC Sounds. Her theatre work has toured nationally and been produced by Watermill Theatre, Theatre Royal Bath, Bristol Old Vic, Pentabus Theatre and the award-winning company Bucket Club. Marietta’s play Our Church, explores the rehabilitation of a sex offender by a dwindling rural community. The drama was developed from lived experience as a volunteer working with police and probation services to provide specialist support and accountability for sex offenders.
