Lubna (58) has been selected to take part in Space/Time 2021, a creative retreat for older early career artists run by Magnetic North in partnership with Luminate.
I am a writer, comedian and actor. I came to the creative world in my late forties as an actress, stand-up comedian and writer after a successful career in pharmacy. I have written stand up shows as well as short plays. Recently I was asked to write opinion pieces for the Scotsman and The Sunday Times Scotland.
Radio Scotland have me on speed dial and Radio Manchester, Ulster as well as 5 Live have asked me to give my opinion on a variety of topics such as ageism, online dating as well as Black Lives Matter.
I have been doing stand-up comedy, with an observational storytelling style, since 2013 and have gigged all over the UK as well as the USA.
After getting initial funding from Stellar Quines to research and develop a new short play Bella and Max, I was successful in obtaining further funding from Edinburgh City Council to keep the process going. This year I have started a Podcast Just being human – a philosophical approach to life.
