Teddy Lamb is a non-binary writer and performer based in East London and a graduate of the Theatre Directing course at Dartington College of Arts. Equally inspired by Carly Rae Jepson and Tennessee Williams, they strive to tell stories that explore the intersections between popular culture and politics. Their debut solo show SINCE U BEEN GONE, which Teddy wrote and performed, premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2019, after previewing at the Gate Theatre. The show was spectacularly received by audiences and garnered a glowing 4* write up from the Guardian who called the play “bold, honest and swollen with love”.
Teddy co-founded the devised feminist theatre company Holly&Ted in 2016 with long-time collaborator and friend Holly Norrington. They were part of the Soho Theatre Writers Lab and the LGBTQ Arts Review #RaisingOurVoices scheme for queer and trans writers. They are currently under commission at The Unicorn Theatre, The Place and Central School of Speech and Drama. Alongside their passion for writing, Teddy is a facilitator and runs creative arts projects for young people from the LGBTQ+ community.
