About Kay Mellor

Kay started her career by forming the Yorkshire Theatre Company with two friends from Bretton Hall College in Leeds. They began touring plays which Kay had written. Since her first play for theatre, PAUL, which was entered for the N.S.D.F. and won Best New Play, Kay has written continuously for theatre and television.  Her shows over the years have won and been nominated for numerous awards, and Kay herself was awarded the BAFTA Dennis Potter award in 1998 for Outstanding Writing for Television.
