    Jacob Margaret Archer is a non-binary playwright and dramaturge. Their work is frequently character-driven and embraces themes of longing and belonging, families of choice, and how best to manage one’s existential dread (always taking suggestions!), while emphasizing queer, transgender, disabled, and neurodivergent voices. Their time in the NTS Playwriting program has included training in dramaturgy, translation, writing for television, and theatre for young audiences. They also studied theatre production, directing, and devised theatre throughout their undergraduate degree. They have recently worked with a selection of theatre practitioners, including dramaturges Erin Shields and Andrea Romaldi, and directors Maiko Yamamoto and Sarah Garton Stanley.
