Kieron Barry was born in Stratford-upon-Avon. His plays include the verbatim drama Stockwell, which enjoyed two sell-out runs in London in 2009. It was described by The Times in its five-star review as 'more gripping than anything else to be seen in the London theatre' and by the Daily Express as 'stark, stunning... deeply poignant... one of the most important plays of the year.' The play prompted Barry's nomination for the Charles Wintour Award for Most Promising Playwright at the London Evening Standard Theatre Awards.
His play Tomorrow In The Battle ran at Stageworks Hudson in 2012 and 2014 where it was hailed by the Times Union as 'one of the most remarkable pieces of theatre in recent memory' and by the Berkshire Eagle as 'a spell-binding world premiere'.
His other plays include Mahler & Rachmaninov, Embassyland, Black Soap and Return Of The Dreaded Wim-Wams.
Kieron Barry's work as a film director includes Vice, starring Jay O. Sanders and Joel McKinnon Miller, and Seconds.
