While completing a BA in English and MA in Creative Writing from the University of Nottingham, Tara was the artistic director of her own theatre company. She has written and directed a number of shows and films, with her play Alice winning ‘Best New Writing’ and ‘Best Breakthrough Play’ at the Greater Manchester Fringe 2022.
Tara was also the Company Technical Director of the Nottingham New Theatre for two years and previously, she worked as a technician at Malvern Theatre and Nottingham’s Theatre Royal & Royal Concert Hall.
