Amy is a playwright, theatre maker, and actor based in Glasgow. She trained at the University of Glasgow and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Her last show, Super Awesome World [dir. Rob Jones], which explores depression through video games and audience participation, won Summerhall’s Autopsy Award, and was nominated for the Scottish Arts Club Award (Best Show) and for The Scotsman’s new Mental Health Fringe Award when it premiered at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2017. Super Awesome World toured the UK in 2018/19 as well as appearing Off-Broadway as part of United Solo Festival in NYC.
Amy Conway is using her time at Cove Park to complete a draft of her new play. Mountain is a modern day pilgrimage into the Scottish hills, an homage to Nan Shepherd’s modest, but immaculate collection of writings about our spiritual connection to landscape and wilderness.
