Naomi Sheldon is an actress and emerging writer. Thanks to Paines Plough, Naomi is at Cove Park for the first time to develop a new piece of theatre.
Naomi’s debut play Good Girl was in association with the Old Red Lion (London) and premiered there in July 2017. It then played Vault Festival and Trafalgar Studios. Good Girl received critical acclaim at the Fringe festival winning Voice’s Pick of The Fringe award where she was described by Chortle as having ‘a touch of the Victoria Wood in the way she can draw out humour from the minutiae of everyday experience – but then she goes beyond that to add layers of psychological examination’. Naomi will also spend part of her time at Cove Park developing Good Girl for Clerkenwell Films.
As a comic improvisor and actress, Naomi was most recently seen in the latest series of Red Dwarf for Baby Cow, and her other credits include the Raindance film festival winning short Cla’am (BBC), The Pride directed by Jamie Lloyd, Peter Pan Goes Wrong for Mischief Theatre and a season at the RSC. She works with The Canon: a Literary Sketch Group, and is developing a series for radio 4 with them. She recently wrote and starred in her first comedy short, Recall For Range of Women.
Naomi is represented by United Agents.
