Ankita Singh
Ankita Singh is a writer, documentary director and award-winning theatre producer raised between Chandigarh and Kirikiriroa. She can trace her ancestry to the Himalayan hill station of Ranikhet,  Aligarh and pre-partition Lahore in Punjab. 
Not long after completing her Master's in Screenwriting from AUT University, Ankita won the 2021 Piki Pitch. With a firm grasp for storytelling, Ankita has been commissioned by TVNZ to create a  half-hour action-comedy and received a Seed grant from the New Zealand Writers Guild to develop her supernatural romantic-comedy feature film. 
She debuted as a playwright with her neo-noir action-comedy play 'BASMATI BITCH', making history as the first South Asian female playwright to be commissioned in Aotearoa. Auckland Theatre Company, Aotearoa's largest theatre company commissioned and co-produced the play with SquareSums&Co. It premiered at Q Rangatira in 2023 - the season was extended twice due to popular demand. 
She is currently developing her series with Piki Films and working on her next play - a horror magic realist play 'RABID' through the Rocket Park Writers' Lab.
