Jaisal Marmion

Jaisal is an early career writer, primarily interested in exploring issues around identity, multiculturalism and racism. Jaisal grew up in Goa before moving to the UK and a lot of my work is informed by his heritage and having family from India and Ireland.

Jaisal started out writing poetry and then became more interested in writing drama, before studying scriptwriting at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. His first play - West Country Oriental Gentleman - a comedy about an Indian nationalist in Bristol on a mission to assassinate Queen Victoria, won a place on BOLD Theatre’s Playwrights scheme, and also received a reading as part of a festival for the RAFTA playwriting award.

Jaisal has also had some short pieces staged as part of Chewboy’s Chewfest, Beyond Face’s We Are Here To Write scratch night, and with Green Curtain Theatre at the London Irish Centre. Jaisal has also
written a short film, Kids, that was produced at MetFilm School.
