Alecky BlytheIn 2003 Alecky Blythe founded Recorded Delivery and created her debut show Come Out Eli. She had been inspired to make it having learnt the verbatim technique from Mark Wing Davey in his innovative workshop Drama Without Paper. The show premiered at the Arcola winning the Time Out Award for Best Production on the Fringe and later transferred to the BAC for the Critics Choice Season. After its success, she has continued to explore the verbatim method in various mediums. The term 'recorded delivery' has now become synonymous with the verbatim technique she employs. In 2006 Cruising was a sell out at The Bush in 2006. The following year she wrote A Man In A Box for Channel 4. In Brussels, she created I Only Came Here for 6 Months that played at two of Brussels's leading theatres, K.V.S and Les Halles. In July 2009, The Girlfriend Experience transferred from the Royal Court to the Young Vic, and Do We Look Like Refugees?, won a Fringe First Award at the Edinburgh Festival in 2010. London Road, which she co-authored with composer Adam Cork, won Best Musical at the Critics' Circle Awards and was revived in 2012 at the National Theatre in the Olivier after its sellout in the Cottesloe in 2011. She was also involved in Headlong Theatre's production of Decade, and wrote and co-directed The Riots ; In their Words, a drama documentary for BBC2. Her most recent play, Where Have I Been All My Life? was produced at the New Vic Theatre in April 2012. She is currently working on a new commission for the National, adapting London Road for a film with BBC films and Cuba Pictures and has co-written Friday Night Sex for the Royal Court's Open Court Season with Michael Wynne.
