Naomi has worked for

Very interesting meeting with dramaturge Naomi Sumner Chan from @BSOwriters on the hidden world of theatre script readers. She’s wise and insightful and I do recommend her.

I recently received some fantastically useful feedback from Naomi on my current script – to anyone looking for a detailed script report that breaks down what is working and what isn’t in an astute but accessible way, I would highly recommend her.

Naomi is brilliant at what she does. She has helped me progress from having experience in TV and Radio Script writing - to being able to complete a full theatre script. In the 18 months since I met her at a workshop, I have had work performed in London and Manchester theatres. I no longer feel a novice in the theatre. She gives cracking advice and I can wholeheartedly recommend her.
