Before becoming a playwright, Fraser Grace worked as an actor and performance poet. His first play, Perpetua, was joint winner of the Verity Bargate Award and was produced by Soho Theatre/Birmingham REP. Since then, he has written for theatres all over the UK, including the Royal Shakespeare Company, whose production of Breakfast with Mugabe won the John Whiting Award in 2006 and a Silver Sony Award when broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and the World Service. The play has since been revived in the UK and the US. More recent plays include The Lifesavers (Theatre 503/Mercury Theatre Colchester), shortlisted for TMA Best Play 2009, and King David: Man of Blood (Mercury Theatre, Colchester, 2010). A new play, Kalashnikov, In The Woods By The Lake, toured the UK in 2011. His plays are published by Oberon Books.
