About & Contact


My name is Daniella Harrison and I am a writer, reviewer and new bookstagrammer based in London.

The Mortal Fool started in 2016 when I wanted a space to write about and review theatre whilst I was studying at university. Since then, I have gone on to write for other publications including Noises Off Magazine, Fest, and WhatsOnStage. In April 2018 I was awarded the Theatre Record Critics Award at the National Student Drama Festival.

Now that I have a full-time job in theatre marketing, this site has become a place where I also dive into writing about pop culture, TV, film, digital culture, and anything else! It’s a place for me to practice writing in different styles and write regardless if a pitch is accepted.

If you’d like to work with me, email me on daniella.harrison@hotmail.com
You can also contact me on Twitter and Instagram.

I’m currently looking for shows at VAULT Festival 2019 who would like to be reviewed or have an  interview to promote their show. I’m particularly interested in women-led and working class companies, as well as any comedy shows or shows dealing with social media/climate change/Gen Z topics.
