Who we are

Aisha Zia

Writer

Aisha is a London based writer. Her work comes from a very real place, engages communities and people, and seeks to challenge assumptions made about the world we live in.

She worked with Evie on her first full-length play An Indecent Incident adapted from Dostoyevsky’s A Nasty Story and produced in an old zip factory in London. She went on to complete her second full-length play, The Fox and the Libertine, gaining a distinction on her MA in Creative Writing at City University. Her first short film documentary Ridley Road was part of the East End Film Festival in 2011.
