Playwright in Residence

Stephen M Hornby dramatises archives for stage and screen, revivifying the past and finding forgotten stories that demand to be heard. He is the Artistic Director of Inkbrew Productions, his multiple award-winning creative company based in Manchester. They specialise in making LGBTQ+ heritage performances working in theatres, galleries, museums and embedded in communities bringing the queer past to life to illuminate the present.

He is a Teaching Fellow at the University of Salford leading classes on playwriting, scriptwriting and directing. He is honoured to have been the first LGBT+ History Month Playwright In Residence since 2015.
