Lindsey Brown

Lindsey Brown is a New Zealand writer whose passion for the performing arts started at a young age. Initially a keen musical theatre and improv performer, she then moved into the world of writing. She obtained a Masters of Scriptwriting from Auckland University of Technology, and since then hasn’t looked back.

Lindsey has had pieces performed around the world, including London, New York, Hollywood, Florida, Chicago, Houston, Atlanta, Sydney, Dubai, Queenstown and Auckland.

Successes to date include being the 2020 recipient of the PANZ Outstanding Achievement Award, winner of the Chicago Galaxy Theater Company One Act Competition, winner of the 2021 New Works Festival Long Beach Playhouse in California, and winner of Show Off 2022 for Camino Real Playhouse in California.

Lindsey often favours comedy in her writing, believing that when we laugh, we are most open to learn. It’s also more fun to write! Her plays contain strong roles for women that like to challenge those themes that are universal to us all.
