Julia Darling





A celebration of the life and work of Julia Darling

To mark the tenth anniversary of Julia's death, Live Theatre has commissioned five short plays inspired by her work.

During her time as writer in residence at Live Theatre from 2001 to 2003, Julia wrote The Last Post, Attachments, Venetia Love Goes Netting, Personal Belongings and Sudden Collapses in Public Places. In addition to her plays, she was always generous to and supportive of colleagues, writers and emerging artists making new work.

These pieces feature some of Julia’s collaborators as well as some exciting new faces working with Live Theatre for the first time. More details are on the Live Theatre website.

In addition New Writing North and Newcastle University are putting on events in her memory and to celebrate her work and life. Diamond Twig, the small press that Julia ran with Ellen Phethean, are running a series of poems Inspired by Julia.

There’s a new facebook page for the Friends of Julia Darling. Join it if you’re on Facebook!

BBC Radio 4 Extra ran the sequence of short plays by Julia, Appointments, on Radio 4 Extra in the week starting on April 13th. You can listen to them via this link until 13 May. Also available via the Listen Again service is The Waiting Room.

Stocks of Rendezvous, a CD of Julia's poems, are now exhausted, but plans are afoot to issue it for download on Bandcamp. Six of the poems are read by Julia herself and eleven set to music by Tim Dalling. More details, including samples, are over on Tim Dalling’s website.

One of Julia's last collaborations was with the artist Emma Holliday, on the First Aid Kit for the Mind. These are available direct from Emma.

This site will continue to be the place to find information about Julia and her work.
