Rachel De-lahay is a writer for theatre, film and television. Her debut play The Westbridge was awarded the Writer’s Guild Award for Best Theatre Play in 2012 and was joint winner of the 2011 Alfred Fagon Award (under its former title SW11). Rachel followed this up with ROUTES, which opened Vicky Featherstone’s first season at the Royal Court in 2013. The play went on to earn Rachel the Charles Wintour Award for Most Promising Playwright at the Evening Standard Awards 2013. Rachel’s third full-length play CIRCLES debuted at Birmingham Rep and transferred to the Tricycle Theatre. In 2015, the Bush commissioned Rachel to write a monologue for Black Lives, Black Words. The monologue became MY WHITE BEST FRIEND, which became the template for Rachel to collaborate with and commission a number of established and emerging voices in theatre under the Bunker and the Royal Court.
