    Hannah was born in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire. Hailing from four generations of devotion to the oeuvre of musical theatre; Maxwell's family have spearheaded the Welwyn Thalians Musical & Dramatic Society since 1929.

    Hannah studied English and Drama at Queen Mary, University of London.

    From 2015 - 2018 they worked with Split Britches (Lois Weaver and Peggy Shaw), as assistant, mentee, writer and collaborator, in an evolving relationship which could almost be called career progression - culminating in co-writing Unexploded Ordnances  which premiered at La Mama ETC in New York in January 2018 and at the Barbican in May 2018.

    Their first full-length solo show, I, Amdram, was hewn from a sizeable block of autobiographical stories about my hometown and it's attendant amateur theatre scene. It was initially developed with support from Camden People's Theatre and their Starting Blocks scheme for SPRINT Festival 2017. In 2018 it was further developed with support from Arts Council England. It ran at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2019 with the Pleasance, garnering 4 and 5 star reviews, and is currently touring nationally and to Australia.

    In 2018 they piloted a new “performed parlour game podcast”, Best Day Ever, which was developed with their uncle, poet Glyn Maxwell. Live shows, hosted by themselves, and featuring the banterific stylings of comedians, live artists, drag queens and poets, will be taking place throughout 2019, at venues including CPT and Boulevard Theatre.

    I, AmDram

    Tue 1 - Thu 3 May
    Utilising queer theory, degree-level practice-based research and a showstopper of a smile, I, AmDram minds the gap between the identities we assert and the worlds we leave; all through the musty vibrancy of amateur dramatics.
