Ruth D’Silva

Writer | 2023 Bursary

Pronouns: she/her

Bursary Supported by Nicole Kidman

“The MCG Futures bursary will help me develop a play that tells the tale of the colonised rather than the coloniser revisiting an old classic. I also receive the guidance and mentorship of an MCG team committed to encouraging unheard voices. Priceless at this stage of my career as an emerging writer. I am so happy.”

The bursary will allow Ruth to champion global majority voices by writing a radical theatre adaptation of a British classic set in colonised India.
