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.
