Writing Projects by Marie Cooper - Plays, Screenplays, and More

Marie Cooper’s Writing Portfolio

Welcome to my writing portfolio. In addition to my work as an actor, I am also a writer. I have a passion for storytelling and enjoy crafting compelling narratives for both stage and screen. I am incredibly fortunate to have been born and raised in beautiful, medieval Norwich, a UNESCO City of Literature and The City of Stories. It is perhaps unsurprising then that I find my home city very frequently makes an appearance in my playwriting and screenwriting.

On this page, you can find a selection of my writing projects. These include plays, screenplays, and other written works that showcase my skills and creativity as a writer.

I hope you enjoy exploring my writing projects. If you have any questions or would like to discuss a potential collaboration, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Thank you for visiting!
