Drew Taylor-Wilson [they/he] is a neurodivergent, queer creative working in TV, Film and Theatre. They are an award winning theatre director, playwright, facilitator and theatre artist development specialist, trained at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland [RCS]. They have recently completed a Masters in TV Fiction Writing from Glasgow Caledonian University. “A glittering colossus” [Metro] Drew writes to advocate for seldom heard voices, creating bold contemporary queer stories that destigmatise mental health difficulties. Their plays have been seen across the UK, they are a former performance poet and frequently bend genre and form in both screen and stage writing. As a director/ facilitator, Drew makes socio-political performance with participants at all levels of experience (or none). His practice asks an audience to question their societal norms, engaging with low-brow glitz, crafted with sophisticated dramaturgy. His work is blackly comedic, athletically delivered and beats with a poetic heart. Drew has been commissioned by Take Me Somewhere, (Glasgow), Brighton International Festival, and Commonwealth Games 2014 Cultural Festival. Drew is the former Artistic Director of Performance Collective Stranraer, Co-Director of Sanctuary Queer Arts and works freelance as a Director and Dramaturg, often with spoken word artists. They regularly mentor artists from the RCS and have facilitated education/outreach projects at every major theatre venue in Scotland.
