Sophia Davidson Gluyas

Sophia completed her Bachelor of Arts at the University of Sydney in 2006. In 2014, Sophia was engaged as Olympian Torah Bright’s ghost writer for her autobiography It Takes Courage. 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. Sillage returned to McElhone Place in 2019 as part of the Sydney Fringe Festival. Sophia’s scholarly publications include: Dancing Federation Steps: A (queer) lesbian reading of Strictly Ballroom and Missing the Lesbian and the Missing Lesbian: A Study of the Forgotten Lesbian in 1970s Australian Cinema. The Bed Party premiered at The Old 505 Theatre as a part of the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras 2019. The play originally ran for one week but resonated so strongly with audiences it returned for a three week season in April 2019. Sophia is currently developing a new Queer musical with writer/composer Max Hopwood, Keeping Time which was read as part of the 2019 Storytellers Festival at KXT.
