Issy Knowles is a Meisner trained actress, National Youth Theatre Member and an emerging playwright.
Her first play 'Model Behaviour' debuted at Edinburgh's 2018 Fringe Festival where it received glowing 4* reviews across the board and later sold out its London preview at The Arcola Theatre. Model Behaviour was included in the Pleasance Theatre’s 2019 Spring Season in London, ‘You Will Know Their Names’, where it heralded 5/4* reviews and left audiences ‘absolutely furious’ over the treatment of models within the industry.
Issy says that it was the desire to have her voice heard that inspired her to write Model Behaviour and she intends to spend the next few years developing her skill as a writer and continuing to create her own work.
Issy Knowles is represented by Tavistock Wood and Curtis Brown.
