Cara Donnelly is a writer, an improviser and comedienne.  She has contributed to Diva magazine and Persephone magazine and directed numerous shows, including Snow White: The Way Through The Woods, an orchestral melodrama in verse at St Augustine’s in Edinburgh 2014 with Two Shades of Blue.  She used to improvise regularly with the Cambridge Impronauts and has given invited improvised comedy workshops to the London Chameleons and The Young Actors Company, and is co-director of One Stop Theatre with Rachael Castell.  She has worked as an astrophysicist (holding a PhD in the subject) and a software developer.  She plays Go, although not as much as she would like.

ToadWorld.co.uk hosts her fiction and her essays on improvisation.  The name, ToadWorld, comes from the Ocean Colour Scene song "Traveller's Tune":

But if you find yourself standing on the corner
While you're thinking of a different world
Then you might see me waiting on the corner
Staring through you in your different world
