Ginny Davis is a Warwickshire based former barrister, now novelist, and award-winning writer and performer for theatre. Her comedic plays about modern family have sold out to audiences at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and theatre venues throughout the UK. Reviewers have described her work as ‘enormously funny’ (The List) ‘effortlessly hilarious, the epitome of heart-warming comedy.’ (Three Weeks), “Clever and witty” (The Scotsman).
In ‘To the Fringe and Beyond’ Ginny Davis describes her career which began in the translations department of Birmingham Chamber of Commerce and moved her via practice at the criminal bar to become a writer and performer. Her talk, which is illustrated with performance and readings, is designed to entertain, and inform her audience. It includes the similarities between criminal legal advocacy and acting, what actors do when they forget their lines, why barristers wear wigs and what motivated a middle-aged mother to put herself on the stage and stay there.
Ginny’s recent novel ‘What Lies Beneath the Surface’ is available for purchase on Amazon and Kindle.
