Lolita Chakrabarti is probably best-known for her work as an actress, most recently in the ITV series Beowulf.
But she is also an award-winning writer: her play Red Velvet won her the Charles Wintour Award for most promising playwright at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards in 2012.
Now the play is moving to the Garrick Theatre with her husband Adrian Lester in the lead role.
Appearing on London Go, she told London Live's Luke Blackall about how she created the play and how she combines acting and writing.
Red Velvet is on at the Garrick Theatre from January 23 to February 26 2016.
