Since 2020, Chloe has been writing scripts for stage and screen. Her first project was to adapt her flash story, Exchange Rate (Ellipsis Zine, 2019) into a monologue, which was performed by Emma Stansfield (Coronation Street, Jamie Johnson). Emma and Chloe have since adapted it into a short film that entered production in July 2023.
In 2023, Chloe’s one-act play Human Resources was one of 37 selected by the Royal Shakespeare Company to create a new folio of “plays for our time”, celebrating 400 years since Shakespeare’s 37 plays were first collected. The play was showcased at Hall for Cornwall in autumn 2023, directed by Aga Blonska. It has previously been staged by Putney Community Theatre in May 2022, and is available for professional production.
