I am a theatre producer, lecturer and writer. Currently, I am Executive Director of the multi-award-winning Papatango Theatre Company.
As a producer, my practice revolves around new writing, talent development, and education and participation. I have mounted world premieres at West End and off-West End venues and on national tours, as well as transferring work internationally. Recent productions have won an Alfred Fagon Audience Award, been nominated for 16 OffWestEnd Awards and The Stage Debut Award, and transferred to or been remounted in over twenty countries. I have also designed free training and education programmes which reach over 3000 people a year across the UK.
As a lecturer, I have taught at the universities of Oxford, York, Northampton, Plymouth and Gloucestershire, and supervised MA/MFA Writing for Stage and Screen students at the Royal Central School of Speech & Drama. I am also co-author of the bestselling Being A Playwright: A Career Guide for Writers, published by Nick Hern Books.
Please note that, since 2015, I have not been available to take on any freelance theatre projects, as I began to work full-time for Papatango at this point. I am, however, always happy to hear from playwrights or theatre-makers; please drop me a message through the contact form.
