Emer O'Toole is a theatre scholar and writer. Her academic work examines the ethics of intercultural theatre. In a popular vein, she's working on a short book about female body hair. She contributes to The Guardian, blogs for the popular feminist site Vagenda, recites short stories for audio magazine 4'33'', composes comedy sketches for the fledgling troupe Wet Lettuce, and, occasionally, writes romantic poetry for her boyfriend. She comes from the beautiful West of Ireland, but is patriotic about Brixton.
