Why The Cagebirds?

  Tomorrow night marks the opening performance for The Cagebirds, the play I've been directing with The Little Theatre, and I thought you all might be interested in why I've chosen to direct this play, or rather, why I've chosen to direct it as a feminist interpretation. I don't want to spoil the play for … Continue reading

Coffee & TV IV: The Double Date

Lights up on a standard living room shared by two guys. There’s a TV towards DSR, facing a couch, on which is sat ALEX. He has a bowl of cereal and is watching the TV, laughing at whatever show is on. The room is relatively untidy, but not in a dirty way – just that … Continue reading


Usually I find titles quite easy, but every so often I write something for which a title doesn’t immediately suggest itself. This week was one of those weeks, so apologies for the title, but here’s a new script for your entertainment. Hope you enjoy!

Sometimes the slightest thing can give you the inspiration for something and I find it’s best to roll with it. This is probably why it … Continue reading

Long Time, No See

Sunset over Mill Green

It’s been a while since I updated, sorry about that. There have been things going on and not many of them have been all that good, so that’s why I’ve been silent. Trying to sort out real life and not getting all that far. I’ll try to keep updating as usual from now on, but … Continue reading

Show Your Support: The Way Things Are

As keen eyed readers will know, a play what I wrote is being performed in March with Leicester University Theatre. It’s called The Way Things Are and hopefully you’ve already moseyed over to the page here on my website and had a look at what it’s all about. Hopefully, you’re also thinking of coming along or even … Continue reading
