Deborah McAndrew found fame as Coronation Street's Angie Freeman in the 1990s. But she then stepped back from the spotlight and has since become an award-winning playwright - and even turned down a return to the soap, in its script department.

One of Each is McAndrew's first work since she won the UK Theatre Award for best new play in 2014 for An August Bank Holiday Lark, about a village at the outbreak of World War One. That prize was a milestone for McAndrew, 14 years after she decided to swap acting for writing.
