Writer. Visual Artist. Agent for Change.
Rebecca Crookshank is a writer and international visual artist with a unique story.
Aged 17, she joined the Royal Air Force. Her experience informed her later writing of Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, an award-winning solo play which toured the UK, receiving its international premiere on 42nd Street, New York. Since being catapulted into the public eye, she has been an activist for women's rights and has featured on BBC's Victoria Derbyshire Show and Channel 4 News. Nominated for a Liberty and Human Rights Award, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is currently in development for screen with Urban Myth Films.
Crookshank was selected as one of the commissioned playwrights for the Old Vic 12. As a result she is currently developing an original TV series for Sky.
Rebecca is creating a new play inspired by revolutionary women, feminist voices and her research in Asia, supported by Arts Council England, British Council and The Vietnamese Women's Museum, Hanoi. This has led to a commission with Lunar Lander films where she is working on her first feature film. She has featured and written for The Telegraph, The Huffington Post, and The Guardian. Her interview on Channel 4 News received over 5 million views in one week.
