Dorcas A. Stevens (she/her) is an actress, writer and facilitator of sometimes conflicting British-Nigerian descent. East London born and Essex raised she started out writing poetry from a young age, going on to be a published poet for a children’s poetry Anthology.

As an actress she has worked on various productions with Talawa, Theatre Royal Haymarket, The Belgrade Theatre, The Space Theatre, Purple Night Colour Productions and more. She has toured in Manchester, Bristol and Wales on ‘Hive City Legacy’ (UK Tour) with Roundhouse in association with Quiet Riot. Returning to publish her debut novel ‘Hope & Worth’, available on Amazon here.

When she’s not on the court as an undiscovered Netball star, she enjoys telling stories that balance lightness, style and cultural consciousness and place front and centre the black African diaspora, female and other marginalised peoples experiences.

She is also a playwright, screenwriter, poet, facilitator, undiscovered Netball star and some other things she is yet to discover…
