About Fraser Grace
Fraser Grace grew up in Derbyshire in the English Midlands, and worked as an actor and performance poet before he became a playwright. In addition to writing plays, for stage and radio, he is also keenly involved with both opera and fiction. Throughout, he is interested in people, and in the impact their beliefs have on their world- and vice versa.
As you'll see from the rest of the site, Fraser is the author of a number of successful plays for theatre including, Perpetua, Gifts of War, Who Killed Mr Drum? (Co-written with Sylvester Stein), Frobisher's Gold, and most notably Breakfast with Mugabe, originally produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company, and winner of the John Whiting Award for best new play of 2006. That production transferred to the West End in May 2006, and the play has continued to draw critical acclaim through more recent productions in both the UK and the US.
Current Activities Fraser directs the Writing Drama course at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge, and is also an Associate Writer with Menagerie Theatre, Cambridge.
