About me

I'm a multi-award winning British playwright based in London. 

I write bold poetic political plays about the experiences of ordinary people caught up in the whirlwind of big events.

My work has been supported and developed by The National Theatre Studio, Royal Shakespeare Company, The Orange Tree, Arts Council England, The Peggy Ramsay Foundation, The Orchard Project, The Studios Key West and OffWestEnd.com.

I'm currently Senior Lecturer in Writing for Theatre at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, where I lead the MA/MFA Writing for Stage and Broadcast Media.

My book The Contemporary Political Play was recently published by Bloomsbury.
