YVONNE GRACE – Television Drama Consultant
I trained as a Theatre Designer gaining a BA Hons and then worked for five years as an actress in mainly touring theatre companies before coming to London in the late 1980’s. I read scripts for Radio, Theatre and latterly Television, gaining invaluable insights into how writers write and what makes a great script.
I set up a successful script development company The DEPTFORD WIVES, which ran for two years, championing the work of new writers and show casing them in The BIRD’s NEST THEATRE PUB in Deptford to appreciative audiences.
I have 25 years experience in script editing, story lining, script development and television drama production.
I cut my teeth in Script Editing on EASTENDERS going on to develop long-running formats for the BBC Drama Series Department until I was asked to return to my Northern roots and work for GRANADA TELEVISION in Manchester in 1993. I stayed there till 1998 working on the BAFTA Nominated children’s medical series THE WARD as Series Script Editor.
