Ginny Davis is a writer and performer who is committed to writing and performing authentic plays. She draws on personal experience, close observation and research.

In  “Learned Friends” she draws on a lifelong association with the law.  Her father was a solicitor, her mother was a JP. Ginny worked as a criminal barrister in Birmingham and is married to a High Court Judge.

Ginny is also a regular speaker to WI, Probus, village and community groups.  The 2015 centenary of WI, and many hours spent watching and listening whilst waiting to give her presentation have inspired “Arrows of Desire” a brand new one-act play.

Her successful series of comedic one woman plays  “The Ruth Rich Saga” are portraits of modern family featuring the Rich family: mother, father, granny and three teenage/young adult kids.  The latest play in the series: “UpDownSizing” was written in 2018.

Earlier play scripts are available for hire by amateur or professional theatre groups.


Learned Friends

NEW!  Prosecution and Defence counsel await the verdict in the trial of a high profile football manager.  Relationships, careers and the true course of justice are threatened as irregularities in the trial emerge.  With echoes of “Twelve Angry Men” the play takes the audience behind the scenes of criminal proceedings.
