Her play RECOGNITION, about the C19th's famous dual heritage composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, was presented originally as an audio play by 45North Ltd/Ellie Keel Productions in 2021, and then as a full-length piece for Talawa in 2023 as their headline show for Croydon’s City of Culture 2023. Her play AND I DREAMT I WAS DROWNING was selected for Theatertreffen Stückemarkt from over 350 plays submitted to have a reading as part of the festival in Germany in May 2022, and she won the prize of a commission of a new work – THE BRIDGETOWER SONATA - which will be staged at the Schauspiel Leipzig in April 2024. Amanda was commissioned by Audible as part of their Emerging Playwrights Programme and her original radio play WEEDS is now available on the platform. She is currently under commission to Shakespeare’s Globe and Headlong, and to English Touring Opera. She was Writer in Residence at Headlong 2021/2022, and was part of the Young Women Opera Makers residency 2021/22 at Festival D'Aix-en Provence.
