Vinay’s debut play, True Brits, opened at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2014, before transferring to the Bush Theatre and Vault Festival. His latest play, An Adventure, ran at the Bush in 2018 and was revived at the Octagon Theatre, Bolton in 2022. His first piece for television, Murdered By My Father, won the Royal Television Society award for Best Single Drama and was nominated for three BAFTAs. Vinay was named a BAFTA Breakthrough Brit for his work.
He has since written for Paines Plough, ITV, Channel 4 and the BFI, as well as contributing to the bestselling collection of essays, The Good Immigrant. Most recently, Vinay wrote for the 11th and 12th series of Doctor Who – receiving a Hugo nomination for both his episodes – and is developing further projects for TV, theatre and film.
