Georgia Keighery’s affair with theatre has been long-running and saucy. She co-founded Prompt Theatre with Imara Savage in Sydney in 1998 and has been writing for the theatre ever since.
Her first full-length play The Flats won a commendation at the 2003 Philip Parsons Award and she was a writer for the B’Sharp 24 Hour Play Project in the same year. Her play FiREwas part of Darlinghurst Theatre’s In The Raw festival in November 2006, and her monologue Awkward Redemption was performed by Dominik Golding and directed by Emma Sampson as part of the Bits Of Obits Festival in London in 2012. In 2013 her monologue The Other Foot was performed at the London Design Festival as part of Lost Soles, and she is currently in workshops with Riff Raff Theatre for Mugs Like Us – a trilogy of one-woman plays inspired by images of women from the 1920s, taken just after they were arrested.
Georgia is also a freelance journalist. She’s been a columnist for ArtsHub Australia, a travel writer for SheGoes, the copy editor for Spacehacker, contributing editor on the newly-released book The Binge Code, and she hopes to grow up to be a valid human being one day. Sort of.
