Welcome to this website, in which you`ll find information about my plays, my other writing and interests, as well as my  blog, 'Under the Palm Tree'.

Some of the plays are: The Song of Deborah, (staged in Hebrew in Jerusalem, Khan Theatre,  September 2016. Previously @ Lowry Centre, Manchester, 2011;)  The Scapegoat, (rehearsed readings in 2012 and 2013 at Tate Britain and London Jewish Museum,)  Xanthippe, Candlesticks, Remedies, Fire in the Park, Footprints, and Breakages.  There are descriptions of the plays and extracts from reviews, as well as up to date information about current plays and other projects.

`The Scapegoat'  was commissioned by Manchester City Art Gallery, and supported for the readings by Tik-sho-ret Theatre Company in London -  artistic director Ariella Eshed.  Find out more information on `The Scapegoat,` in the section of the website titled ‘Deborah Freemans Current Projects’

On this website you will also find information about Writing Groups and Workshops for experienced and aspiring writers and actors.

The internet is a big place. I am curious to know who comes to this website, and why. Let me know. Meanwhile I am working on new things. Revising Remedies, my novel (Mrs Faust) and enjoying working on a new play. The Committee. Cast of three. 2 men and a woman in early forties.

Novels by Deborah Freeman

 A few years back. I answered an ad on the Radio 3 website, from the conceptual art company, Blast Theory. They were creating a voice-collage for a half hour programme , `Soft Message.` My `contribution` was to be phoned randomly by one of the company, during one week. Brief extracts of my voice would, I was told,  feature among many other voices. The novel grew out of this...

So I was called once or twice a day for 3...

Special Care was shortlisted by Crocus Publishers. In the same year an agent in London offered to take it on, provided I added a hundred pages to the terse story. I decided not to do this, and returned to writing plays. Special Care is about a premature baby born at 28 weeks, lucky to survive - and the mess surrounding her life, not to mention the life of her social worker.
