"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.

"It was appalling, heartbreaking."
Someone must take responsibility for a devastating fire, but who?
The Report is in Bytesize Theatre, a trilogy of three online plays from EGTG in this year's Edinburgh Fringe.
This is the first outing for my 15-minute drama, which won the Pitlochry Festival Theatre Short Play Award in 2018.
View on demand on the Fringe Player from Monday 16th August. Tickets will cost £7.50 and will be available via the EdFringe Box Office soon.
In 2020 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 is now scheduled for May 2022. Uptodate information can be found on the
The Grads website.
