Lulu Raczka

Lulu Raczka is an award-winning young playwright and Company Director of Barrel Organ Theatre, with whom she worked on her first play ‘Nothing’. ‘Nothing’ (Summerhall, Edinburgh/Lyric Hammersmith/Warwick Arts Centre/Camden People’s Theatre) was awarded The Sunday Times Playwriting Award as well as the National Student Drama Festival Award for Creative Risk. ‘Some People Talk About Violence’, also with Barrel Organ, played at the Edinburgh Fringe, New Diorama and Camden’s People Theatre in 2015. In 2016 Lulu’s ‘Clytemnestra’ formed part of the Gate Theatre’s ‘Iphigenia Quartet’ and in the same year her play ‘Grey Man’ was produced as part of the Shakespeare in Shoreditch festival and at Theatre 503, London. Lulu’s new play ‘A Girl in School Uniform (Walks into a Bar)’ was first produced West Yorkshire Playhouse in 2017 and has just been produced at the New Diorama Theatre. She is currently writing an episode of Frank Spotnitz’s new series ‘Medici: Masters of Florence’, starring Dustin Hoffman and Richard Madden, for Lux Vide and Netflix. Lyn Gardner has described Lulu as ‘A voice so distinctive and fully formed it's hard to believe she's so young’.
