Although my time is spent being a student and a modern languages tutor, I simply adore writing and conducting research where possible! This page is very much a ‘work in progress’, but I have high hopes! This page shall be the home to my academic research, creative writing and additional pieces.
‘Ein Mann Kommt nach Österreich‘ is a short play I wrote based in 21st century Austria. The play observes Austria from the viewpoint of a refugee named Ahmed who seeks refuge in what is an extraordinarily stunning country. The narrative actively demonstrates the reality of being an immigrant or refugee of any kind within the European gem that is Austria, as well as conveying Austria’s beauty through the medium of text. Through alienation and isolation the reader can anticipate to experience a variety of observations and themes.
