Veronica has been writing since the age of 7 when, on a road trip with her father, she began recording everything she saw from the car window – the landscape, the people and the conversations within the car. She has written one play for performance at the New Theatre in Sydney, a short play called It Takes Guts To Do A Thing Like That about the complexities of suicide, families and the effects on the people left behind.
Veronica is a performer, singer, dancer and director and has performed all over Australia, the highlight being Lileth for the Women’s Circus in Melbourne. She has aspirations to take a one-woman show to the UK and to complete a full-length play called The Cherry Picker for performance in Sydney and elsewhere. She performed a one-woman show of She Waits No Longer in October. She says that ‘the journey in 2018 as part of the fabulous cohort of Master of Writing for Performance has been life changing and profound.’
