Holly Brindley (playwright)

Holly is a writer and performer from Adelaide, currently based in Melbourne. She trained in acting at the Flinders University Drama Centre and holds a Master of Writing for Performance from the Victorian College of the Arts. As a writer, Holly is most inspired by the immediate world around her and her observations of the everyday – conversations overheard, strangers encountered, memories recorded. She is interested in the nuance and fragility of connection between humans and the struggles that can come from the pursuit of intimacy. She returns often to the idea of “miscommunication” and is interested in examining the inarticulacies of human expression; her plays often revolve around the consequences of her character’s inability to communicate and connect with each other. Holly enjoys writing both original plays and adaptations of existing and classic works, an interest very much fuelled by her previous and ongoing collaborations with Foul Play. 

Meg Wilson (designer)

Meg is a South Australian-based interdisciplinary artist who works predominantly with large-scale and often site-specific installation and performance. She aims to provoke imposed perplexity, uneasiness and a sense of drama in the everyday. As designer for theatre Meg has recently worked with State Theatre Company of South Australia (Terrestrial, 2018) and Windmill Theatre Co. (Amphibian, 2018), and as lead visual artist with ACE Open (Sports Day, 2019) and Urban Theatre Projects (Team Trampoline/ Right Here. Right Now., 2018). For Foul Play Meg has designed Eurydice (2015), Julie (2017) and is the designer for Yerma (2019).
