Slackline Sleepover Playwright, Linda Jane Butler

It’s a Sleepover hat-trick for Linda Jane Butler!

After winning the Audience Choice Award in Jan 2021, Linda turned her first crazy, caffeine-fuelled idea – Grand Theft Post-Mortem – into a TV pilot which went on to make the finals of the S&Co International Festival (2022); the quarterfinals of the Table Read My Screenplay Comp (Park City – 2023); the shortlist for the TRIFORCE/UKTV Writerslam (2021) & the longlist for both the Funny Women Comedy Writing Award (2022) & the Short Com TV Sitcom Writing Comp (2021).

Her current pilot – Debbie Nesbitt’s Not Dead Yet – has also been gathering momentum, recently making the longlist for the Female Pilot Club Comp (2022) & the quarterfinals of the Creative Screenwriting – Unique Voices Comp (2023).

Other credits include: A Couples’ Guide to Plantlife (Sleepover at The Pleasance. Nov 2022); Indigestion (Light On Showcase – Series 2 – Online, May 2021) & Alphabetti Spaghetti (Scriptwriters & Co (Oct, 2020)Waste Not Theatre (Dec, 2021) scratch nights).
