Part of the 2019/2020 BBC Welsh Voices, Rick Allden was shortlisted for the 2019 Wales Writer in Residence award for his audio drama, Moonlight Grey. He’s English, by birth. He thinks they know.
His recent play Grandad the Viking was longlisted for the 2020 Verity Bargate Award as well as shortlisted for development by The Traverse. His short piece No Sleep ‘til Filton Abbey Wood was commissioned by The Sherman in the spring of 2020, and he currently runs the @CompactsUK Twitter account (where more of his monologues can be seen).
Having graduated from the University of Wales, Swansea with a Masters in Creative Writing, Rick co-hosts the Lie Hard with a Vengeance podcast and is thrilled to join Regan Management.
