I am a director, writer, producer and have designed sets and sound for various productions. I trained at York St John College (University Of Leeds) with time at HKU Drama School in Utrecht, Netherlands.
My first play Three Cheers For HRH was written for the Stephen Joseph Youth Theatre. My second, Revenge, was performed at York Theatre Royal (On The Edge was a shorter adapted version, performed by Grin Theatre in Liverpool). My last play, Floating, was funded by Arts Council England and premiered at Unity Theatre before touring nationally. I most recently directed Chris Chibnall’s footballing comedy Gaffer at Unity Theatre to rave reviews.
Cast: 1f | Running time: 60 min
A play about a high dependency nurse in the NHS the play premiered at Unity Theatre, Liverpool in 2012, played in London in Spring 2013 before embarking on a national tour throughout Autumn 2013.
Cast: 2m | Running time: 95 min
A dark comedy with 10 characters running around different types of revenge. The script needs some development to bring to performance level. Performed in 2007 in York Theatre Royal’s studio to some success, but this is not a deep and meaningful piece of theatre (although very funny!).
On The Edge
Cast: 2m | Running time: 20 min
This is a shortened and reworked version of Revenge containing various elements of the original for performance in Liverpool at The Lantern Theatre. Although cut down the script works as a simpler and shorter version of the original. Probably would need some work to get to the necessary standard including some workshopping.
Once Upon A Fairy Tale (Unproduced)
Cast: 2m 1f | Running time: 90 min
This is a full length family show written as part of Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse’s Young Writer’s Programme. The script needs a readthrough to tighten up Act One, and Act Two needs a series of workshops to get the pace correct and also find character resolutions. This is an untested piece of work based on an anti-panto concept mixed with a Morecambe and Wise style.
