A sideways look

Playwright, librettist, lyricist, author, poet and columnist Zella Compton is to speak at Seawork's Women in Marine Industry event on Wednesday 12 June.

Zella’s award-winning play ‘How to be a Girl’, looks at the pressure which the media places on young women, and has been performed in the UK’s Houses of Parliament twice; the first by invitation of the Minister for Women, the second time at the request of the Government Equalities Office where it was shown to an audience of Lords, MPs, and civil servants with particular representation from the Education Department.

Starting out in the construction industry in trade comms PR before hopping the fence to journalism Zella has forged a rewarding career in the communications industry.  She writes a weekly column for The Portsmouth News and has been extensively published as a freelance writer in national press. Her first novel was published in 2011, and she teaches for many theatres including New Theatre Royal, Portsmouth, Chichester Festival Theatre, and the Royal Court.

Recent productions include a tour of Five Beaches to commemorate the 75thanniversary of D-Day, and productions of My World at the Royal Albert Hall, and (in association with the Mayflower Theatre and National Oceanography Centre) at St Mary’s Stadium, Southampton. She has lectured both under and post-grad students in written and visual communications and has enjoyed being writer in residence for many organisations including the Mary Rose Museum.
