I specialise in new writing and have run several week-long theatre festivals in the North East of England devoted to encouraging new theatre writers.
I can be of great assistance to theatre and TV writers at any stage of their creative process, and love to collaborate on scripts of any kind. I have proven instincts for narrative structuring, naturalistic and stylised dialogue, and a track record of successful, lasting relationships with writers.
As a director I have extensive experience with comedy and musicals, as well as classics and new writing, and have directed plays off-Broadway, off-West End, on the London and Edinburgh Fringes, and for touring and site-specific venues.
As a writer I have completed editorial and feature-writing work for various publications, including The Independent, Palatinate, and several magazines and online publications.
Most importantly, I guarantee an enjoyable and stress-free process, and an honest, good-humoured approach to every script.
