I am a theatre director and playwright from Glasgow.
I make new work led by text and music which explores obsession, sensuality and sexual relationships.
I am the Artistic Director of Heroes Theatre, a contemporary writing company who have performed in fields, festivals, pools, pubs and stages across Scotland.
Recent work includes the UK tour of my debut play, One Life Stand - exploring sex and intimacy in the digital age with the award-winning Middle Child, and developing The Drift a spoken word show by poet Hannah Lavery for National Theatre of Scotland and Tron Creative.
As an Assistant Director, I’ve worked with Orla O'Loughlin at the Traverse (What Girls Are Made Of), Wils Wilson and Janice Parker (The Hour We Knew Nothing Of Each Other), and David Greig at The Lyceum, Edinburgh (Glory on Earth), and Andy Arnold at The Tron, Glasgow (Cock).
In 2019 I'll be working on new projects with The Lyceum and Old Vic, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Tron Theatre and the National Theatre of Scotland.
If you'd like to be pals, I run a social play reading group, co-edit a fanzine of new Scottish playwriting and co-ordinate a peer review writing group. hmu.

Across Californian desert, Caledonian wilderness and glasses of crap wine, the lives of two young couples intertwine. One wants to bury their past. The other has bones to pick.
When we put a price on everything, who has ownership over the music that moulds us? Can we separate the base behaviour of the artist from the transcendental art they produce?
"This year's Fringe surely bares few more evocative reflections of life as a British twenty something in 2018."
★★★★ The Scotsman on One Life Stand
"Few shows have captured the conflicting emotions evoked by dating apps and social media. None has done it as stylishly as this."
★★★★ The Stage on One Life Stand
"There’s a deep artistry here and a searing vividness of imagination that leaves audiences shocked and subtly changed."
★★★★ The Scotsman on The Pitchfork Disney
“The skill of Eve Nicol’s production is in harnessing her cast’s fine performances of them into one flowing coherent whole”
