Nyla Levy is a Playwright and Actor. Being mixed race, Pakistani and Canadian, with Muslim and Jewish heritage, and born and bred in London - Nyla has always gravitated towards stories that explore experiences related to identity, culture and race.

Nyla co-founded Two’s Company who went on to tour Different is Dangerous to venues including, Theatre 503, Nottingham Playhouse, The Lowry and Edinburgh Fringe.


Nyla received funding from Arts Council England to develop her first fictional play, Does My Bomb Look Big in This? Which was performed at The Bush, JW3, Hat Factory & Rich Mix.
