Swedish-raised and Essex-based by way of London, Therese Ramstedt is a writer whose work is honest, humorous and human. An alumna of Soho Theatre’s Writers Lab, she has had work performed at Edinburgh Fringe’s Gilded Balloon and Summerhall, the Arcola Theatre, VAULT Festival and The Space as well as on regional and international tours. 

With her commitment to challenging stigmas, making hard-to-talk about topics approachable and empowering neglected perspectives, accolades for Therese’s work have included a finalist placement in Sweden’s biggest scriptwriting competition NY TEXT!, an award from the Thora Ohlsson Cultural Fund, as well as critics’ choices and stellar reviews from publications such as the Stage. Therese’s debut play in English, Mission Abort, was deemed a “a frank and funny glimpse into the mental and physical trauma of abortion" (The Stage) and received a nod from Amnesty’s Freedom of Expression Award. It was invited to perform at multiple festivals and touring theatres, and brought to Sweden by the country’s national touring theatre Riksteatern. In 2020, Therese was commissioned by Western Nebraska Community College to write a new play on ADHD and mermaids.

Alongside her writing, Therese is a dedicated producer currently working in production management for London’s Barbican Centre. She also undertakes regular work as a singer and musician - appearing for example on Imogen Heap’s soundtrack to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - and regularly composes songs for her own plays as well as commissions for other projects.

Therese holds an MA in Theatre Studies from University of Gothenburg (second city of Sweden, not where Batman lives) with a Postgraduate degree in Actor/Performer training from Rose Bruford College as well as a cheeky CertHE in Songwriting from the British Institute of Modern Music.
