Sophia Davidson Gluyas


Sophia is a writer, director, producer and recreational scholar who has been making art (and making trouble) in different formats for 15 years. In 2015, Sophia was commissioned to write Haunted (Hoey) for the Surry Hills Festival, a site-specific theatre work staged in the doorway of the abandoned Hopetoun Hotel featuring Madeleine Jones and Graeme McRae. The piece was well received, and the team were invited to stage it again at the 2016 Surry Hills Festival alongside her new work Sillage, also a site-specific work staged in McElhone Place, featuring Elaine Hudson. Sophia’s first staged work, The Bed Party, premiered at The Old 505 Theatre in 2019 as part of the 2019 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras and The Old 505 Theatre’s FreshWorks program. The Mardi Gras/FreshWorks season was sold out and a three week encore season was presented a month later. Sillage returned to McElhone Place in 2019 as part of the Sydney Fringe Festival. Sophia has been developing Keeping Time with writer/composer Max Hopwood since 2016. In 2019, it was read as part of KXT’s Storyteller’s Festival.
