Clare McIntyre (1952-2009) was amongst the extraordinary generation of British female playwrights who emerged in the 1980s. Her best-known plays, including Low Level Panic (Royal Court Theatre, London, 1988) and My Heart's a Suitcase (Royal Court, 1990; winner of the Evening Standard and London Drama Critics awards for Most Promising Playwright), are now considered modern feminist classics. She also had an extensive career writing and acting for film, radio and television.
