Alexandra's writing for stage has been selected for numerous new writing and scratch performances. Her comedy monologue Saint Jude performed at the Other Room, Cardiff and the Drayton Arms in early 2020. 

 

Over the first 2020 lockdown, Alexandra was commissioned to create an original audio drama as part of Wassail Theatre's Connecting Communities project. Gallivanting Goblins is a family friendly tale that explores the history and folklore of the Somerset town of Frome, encouraging its audience to getting in touch with the natural world around them.
