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!
It's on at the Bread and Roses Theatre in Clapham at 4.30pm on Saturday the 30th of July. It's called ADAM - The Modern Frankenstein and I'm ridiculously excited, as well as writing it I'm also performing in this version, although this is an Edinburgh Fringe preview and I won't be in the version at… Continue reading Come see my play in London this weekend!
George the guinea pig woke up crying one morning. He’d lost his excitement at the sight of day dawning. The tears dripping down had matted his fur And made his vision no more than just a blur. George had realised that he didn’t fit in. He had no brothers nor sisters, he had no… Continue reading Once again trying to do something different, I’m trying to write a kid’s book. It’s about a guinea pig called George and his search for identity. Here’s a little extract:
So this is incredibly exciting: First off, Excel spreadsheets for word counts are an absolute dream, and sort of my life at the moment. But more importantly, after a hard few days work, I now find myself over 10,000 words and three chapters in to the book I'm working on. It's tough, and I'm still… Continue reading Novel Update and Extract
From looking at my previous work, it seems there are two topics I love to write about - the strange nature of human interaction, and cereal. Here's an extract from the piece I'm working on which discusses both: "People die every second, and for them, or their family members or loved ones or whoever,… Continue reading Novel Extract – Chapter One
I'm writing a new play for my dissertation (currently called A Complete Fantasy but I might not stick with that), and - without spoiling any of the plot - I thought I'd upload a little extract from the final monologue. I haven't uploaded much new writing recently as I've been focused on performing other pieces,… Continue reading New Play Extract
