About Hilary Spiers
Hilary Spiers is a novelist, award-winning short story writer and playwright, who writes about ordinary women in sometimes extraordinary circumstances. She believes women's complex and fascinating lives deserve more scrutiny than they often get.
Hilary’s film, television, stage and radio rights are handled by Penelope Killick at David Higham Associates: www.davidhigham.co.uk.
Her second novel featuring Hester and Harriet (Hester & Harriet: Love, Lies & Linguine) was published in 2017. She is currently working on a third novel and a new play.
Hilary has been commissioned by Stamford Arts Centre to write and produce a piece of immersive theatre for the Stamford Georgian Festival in September 2019, based on the visit to the town of the legendary tragedienne Mrs Sarah Siddons.
Also in September 2019 Stamford Shoestring Theatre will stage Hilary’s comedy Ladybird, Ladybird at Stamford Theatre.
Hilary worked once again with Birmingham based theatre company Tea & Tenacity on a play about the astonishing Dr James Barry, for forty six years in the nineteenth century a doctor in the British Army – and discovered on his death to be a woman.
