Stage, Screen & Radio


Julia’s most successful adaptation for television was the ‘quietly radical’ secrets-and-lies drama Cold Calling. Originally written for Live Theatre as Attachments, the double-hander made a natural transition from stage to screen on Tyne Tees Television. Cold Calling was described by Julia in Eating the Elephant and Other Plays as ‘one of my most dramatic pieces, full of movement and conflict and all those things that theatre is supposed to have, whereas some of my other works show the definite preoccupations of a poet and a fiction writer.’
