Kerry Fitzgerald

Screenwriter, Playwright, Director, Performer

Kerry is a London-born Irish actor/writer who trained at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. She is also co-artistic director of Purple Ostrich Productions and writes, produces and directs for the company, alongside performing in the shows. ​

As a working-class writer and a feminist, Kerry likes to focus her writing on diverse and female driven narratives and to examine power and class. She enjoys presenting interesting female characters, bold narratives and making people belly-laugh.

When not writing or acting she can be found reading books about the history of London, playing dragons with her six-year-old son, and unsuccessfully battling a tea addiction.
