About me

Bola graduated from the young writers programme at the Royal Court in 2007. Her first play GONE TOO FAR! was selected to be performed as part of the Young Writer Festival and was performed at the Royal Court Theatre (Upstairs) in February 2007. In 2008 the play won the Laurence Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in an Affiliated Theatre. The play was revived in 2008 and returned for a run in the main Downstairs space at the Court, as well as at the Hackney Empire and Albany Theatre. Bola was also nominated for the Evening Standard Most Promising Playwright of the Year in 2008. Bola's writing has been presented by the Royal Court Theatre, ATC, Tiata Fahodzi, Hampstead Theatre, Soho Theatre, Young Vic, Talawa and Cardboard Citizens to name a few. Bola’s screenplay adaptation of GONE TOO FAR! (produced by Poisson Rouge Pictures and the BFI) premiered at the London Film Festival in 2013 and was released in 2014. She has a sequel, GONE TO AFRICA, currently in development with Poisson Rouge.
