I've written my first poem since April! I've been very busy with a new job, but it's nice to finally put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) for the first time in four months. Wrote this over my lunch break at work today. Voices I’ve often heard people talk about the “little voice… Continue reading Voices
I've been working on a new project - it's set in one spot in a park over 24 hours, and shows six little stories of the people we see there. Here's a little extract from one of the recurring stories - our homeless heroes, Sparksy and Mitch, as they discuss a watch that Sparksy has… Continue reading A Day In The Park
I've been experimenting with internal rhymes, and I wanted to share that on this blog. However, this poem is a little bit more personal. Today is the two year anniversary of my grandfather's passing, and I decided to deal with it in the way I always deal with things - writing. Here's what I've written… Continue reading It’s Quiet Outside
I haven't written anything in ages. I haven't had the time, or particularly had the drive. But today, I've started writing a new play. It's called "Five Rules For Living", and I like the way it's started - let's see how far I get with it. For a little taster, here's an extract from a… Continue reading A New Project!
Started on the 23rd of December. Finished on the 28th. I'm currently reviewing the script, but the first draft of my new play, working title 'The Storeroom', is finished! It's a farcical comedy based in a hostage situation. Keep your eyes open for a potential performance in the new year. Here's a little snippet of… Continue reading First draft of The Storeroom finished!
I've had an idea for a new play based off an experience that happened to me the day before New Year's Eve! What's that, I hear you say? I only just finished the first draft of The Storeroom? Eh. I'm in a creative mood. Going to spend this evening working on a draft outline for… Continue reading When inspiration strikes…
After the success of A.D.A.M (three countries and four different runs), I've decided to embark on a new project. I've started writing a new play, which is a comedy based in a hostage situation - I'm trying to broaden my horizons slightly, and thought a straight comedy (with a bit of a bottleneck element thrown… Continue reading New play!
So my play A.D.A.M is transferring to Germany in a few months time, and the company have sent me over the poster. It's a weird feeling, but incredible to see my name emblazoned on the front. Good luck to the company with rehearsals, I'm hoping to get myself out there to see it!
Today we received an email from the British Library, asking for a copy of my play "A.D.A.M - The Modern Frankenstein" to be put into their Modern Playscripts Collection as a piece of contemporary work! Very exciting news and caught me very off-guard, but will hopefully be the first of many.
The Edinburgh performance of A.D.A.M went amazingly! We sold really well, and got some fantastic audience feedback, including a professional review which gave some fantastic feedback on my script.

In the meantime, we're looking into putting on some shows with Shade Theatre across the… Continue reading Edinburgh Run!
