"Gets so, nobody's story's true. Not yours, not mine. But it's all we've got."
First and Fiftieth



My writing - drama and fiction - covers many different characters and situations, ranging from the real to the fantastic, from the deeply serious to the slyly comic, from sensitive to offensive.


As a director of theatre, I am still learning my trade.

"She was tired and her headache was getting worse. All she wanted to do was sit down somewhere in the shade and relax. She looked down to the end of the street; the square seemed far, far away."

  POSTPONED from March 2020 MARCH 2021 DIRECTOR 


Hay Fever


I was pleased to be directing Noel Coward's masterpiece Hay Fever for the Edinburgh Graduate Theatre Group ("The Grads"). This would be the third production (after The Rose and Crown in 2016 and Volpone in 2017) they entrusted me with and before Covid-19 struck.


Coward's work is deceptive - to create his light comedy requires intense preparation by the actors, who have to give pitch-perfect characterisations - but I was fortunate to have a talented cast who were creating a memorably frothy and funny production and to have working with me assistant director Vanashree Thapliyal.


The production has provisionally been rescheduled for May 2021. Uptodate information can be found on the The Grads website.
