Kitty Percy is an award-winning screenwriter known both for original work and for adaptations in film and TV. Her debut feature SHE WILL (Brit List 2018, dir. Charlotte Colbert) stars Alice Krige, Rupert Everett and Malcom McDowell, with a score by Clint Mansell. Selected for the Cannes Great 8 showcase, its gala premiere at Locarno Film Festival will be followed by a theatrical release in 2022. Kitty’s original drama TROUBLE, created for the prestigious Channel 4 Screenwriting Course, is in development with Synchronicity Films, while her original serial THE POINT OF YOU is being developed with BBC Studios. Her first episode of brand new BBC drama series SISTER BONIFACE MYSTERIES is currently in post-production. High profile book-to-screen commissions include THE GATECRASHER, starring Famke Janssen, from the novel by Sophie Kinsella; Maurice Gleitzman’s YA hit GRACE; and DARKNESS FALLS, adapted from ‘The Vanishing of Katharina Linden’ by Helen Grant, which follows a misfit teen as she attempts to unravel the mystery of several disappearances in a small Black Forest town. Kitty is also developing a short film from her own award-winning script, with a view to her directorial debut.
Unafraid to tackle complex emotional themes surrounding relationships, community dynamics and sexual politics, Kitty has an uncanny aptitude for pace and atmosphere across a range of genres including drama, crime, horror, high-concept ‘near fi’ and comedy.
