Anna Lines is a scriptwriter from Ladbroke Grove who helped to start and run the very successful ‘Off The Grove’ scriptwriter’s showcase in the 1990’s – one of the first of its kind in the UK. With sparkling new writing attracting established actors like Lenny James, Frances Barber and Rhys Ifans, OTG drew a loyal following for new talent and soon established itself as one of the most important nights out on the TV and film industry calendar.

Anna jumped at the opportunity to repeat similar success when she helped to found ScriptRead East with her long time friend Sophie Critchlow. Sophie had the original idea of starting a scriptwriter’s showcase in Hackney for new and unknown scriptwriters in TV, film and theatre. At the very successful inaugural SRE event, Anna’s 10 minute comedy short ‘#Hackgate – Solid Gold’ was one of three scripts read. Anna is currently adapting an online novel to screenplay.’
