Writing for Stage and Screen
I am Rebekah Bowsher. I am a screenwriter and playwright who builds worlds with words. I ask questions about the world and use my imagination to answer them. I love to find the magic in the mundane and the miraculous in the hopeless. I write because I hope to change hearts. I write to fill the world with more kindness and love. I write stories with a healthy dose of magical realism, dramatic flair, and representation of marginalised voices. I tell stories that reflect my personal history and my connection to the rich history of the area that I live in.
