Originally hailing from and writing in Melbourne, Andrea now lives and works from Adelaide. She works freelance as writer, director and performer throughout Australia. Two productions she co-wrote and directed with her company SNAKEHOUSE PRODUCTIONS have toured extensively both overseas and within Australia - 'The Serpents Fall' and 'Walking on Sticks.' Andrea is known for her developmental work in writing for puppetry, and has produced a number of papers in this area which are still used extensively as training tools for writers new to this area. She has written plays for Handspan, Terrapin, Home Cooking Theatre, West, Toe Truck, Vitalstatistix, and Arena as well as producing many more independent works.
She has also written a book 'Rodeo Girls Go Round the Outside' published by McPhee Gribble. She is presently developing three new shows - with Snakehouse, the Adelaide Festival Centre Trust and another on an independent writer's project Grant.
