Hannah Ali Khan

MA Drama Writing Student


Hannah Ali Khan is a writer for stage and screen whose writing draws from real life experiences and addresses the world around us.¬† In 2022 she was one of the writers on the North Wall’s Catalyst residency, where she developed her first play exploring friendship and race from a South Asian female perspective.

She graduated from the University of Warwick in 2021 with a BA in Theatre and Performance Studies, where the importance of telling stories that reflected herself and those she grew up with became apparent as a mixed-race woman from a diverse community.¬† She has continued this at BOVTS, with projects including a dystopian “post-race” play exploring mixed-race issues, and an audio play following her journey of being diagnosed with cancer.

The training provided by the MFA programme is superb. The depth with which we explore, paired with unyielding curiosity that is met with the most knowledgeable, passionate, expert tutors is what makes BOVTS programme one of the finest around. I feel honoured to call BOVTS my grad school. Rachel McVay, MA Professional Acting Student
