Morgan’s play Belongings was produced at the Hampstead Theatre and Trafalgar Studios in 2011 to great acclaim and was shortlisted for The Charles Wintour Most Promising Playwright Award. This was followed in 2015 by another hit play at Hampstead Theatre, The Wasp, which also transferred to Trafalgar Studios in 2015.

She has co-written several acclaimed immersive site specific plays with Katie Lyons, produced by Look Left Look Right, including You Once Said Yes, Above and Beyond and Once Upon a Christmas. She was part of the writing team for four of the Lyric Hammersmith’s pantomimes from 2009-2012 and wrote (solo) the Bolton Octagon’s Christmas plays for 2013 and 2014. She has written two large community plays for the Old Vic New Voices; Platform and Epidemic.
