Julie started her career off as an actor and enjoyed working collaboratively with theatre companies at the Edinburgh festival and Arches Live. Julie had always had a passion for writing as well as performing. In 2011, Julies tutor at University, Iain Heggie, took an interest in her writing. This lead to her first full-length play being produced at the Tron theatre in Glasgow. In 2012, Julie was accepted on to the mentor new playwrights' programme at the Playwrights Studio, with Paddy Cunneen as her mentor. Julie submitted her scenes to the new writing event Stage to Page, her pieces were selected to be rehearsed read on two occasions by Martin McCardie and Julie Ellen. One of the pieces, The Sorry Story of the Angel & Bear, was picked up by Andy Arnold and later staged at the Tron theatre in Glasgow as part of Scenes Unseen, a week long production including the great works of Alan Ayckbourn, J.P Donleavy, Athol Fugard and Patrick Marber along with Scottish writers. Julies involvement with Stage to Page lead her to work with them as one of the facilitators organising new hosts, directors and actors to work collaboratively on new writing. Julie is currently developing a new piece which was shown during Reclaim the F word, a week long event themed on feminism at the Tron theatre in Autumn 2013. She is also working collaboratively with Scrapyard theatre at the Traverse theatre developing new work. Julie was in receipt of a small grant award from the Tom McGrath fund in 2013 and is a member of the Scottish Society of Playwrights.

Escaping Time

Synopsis:
-

Notes:
Part of: The Progressive Playwright returns this season with a twist. Each evening, five play extracts will be read on the themes of love, labour and loss and will culminate in the audience voting for the plays that they would like to hear more of. The top two plays from each evening will go forward to the January 2016 Progressive Playwright Award event - where twenty minute readings of each will take place in front of an audience and industry judging panel. The judging panel will choose a recipient of the Progressive Playwright Award 2016 with the winner receiving a 2000 bursary to develop up to a seventy minute version of their play and creative and production support to stage a work-in-progress rehearsed reading

Synopsis:
Ruth doesn't know if the things her man asks her to do are right or wrong. She doesn't feel strongly either way. So should she go along with them? Where should she draw the line? And is she all she seems? Julie Tsang's bold, stylish and uncompromising first play (influenced by Kundera's Unbearable Lightness of Being and Mamet's Sexual Perversity in Chicago) is set in a world of uncertain morality. It asks uncompromising questions about what a women should and shouldn't do to keep her man. And whether by going along with him she runs the ristk of unlocking her own dark desires.
