Noel Clarke: Playwright

Mickey Smith actor Noel Clarke whose writing credits include the films Kidulthood and Adulthood has written his first play which will be staged later in February.

Described as “an edgy new addition to London’s theatreland” Noel Clarke’s latest foray – he’s also written an episode of Torchwood – can be seen at the Louder Than Words event which showcases new work by young writers and will be held at the Tristan Bates Theatre in London from February 16th-24th.

Louder Than Words is organised by Rikki Beadle-Blair who says:

“I am passionate about theatre and what it can teach us and how it can inspire û but the thing I like more than anything is to be entertained. These plays are sheer, shameless, glorious entertainment. And I cannot wait.”

Noel Clarke has also been nominated for the Orange Rising Star Award at this year’s BAFTAs.

Update Friday, February 6th

Article has been updated to amend factual inaccuracies. Apologies to Noel Clarke and Kidulthood Director Menhaj Huda.
