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. She currently accepts bookings to tour “Double Booked” and “Something Fishy” from this series. Each play stands alone and requires no knowledge of previous productions. They can be performed individually or together in a two hour programme entitled “Home Truths”.
She also accepts bookings to perform “Learned Friends” and “Arrows of Desire”. Together these form a 2 hour programme. Individually each runs at one hour.
Earlier play scripts are available for hire by amateur or professional theatre groups.
CURRENT PLAYS AVAILABLE FOR TOURING:
