About Me


My first novel, THE ROMEO AND JULIET KILLERS, is published by Dedalus Books.

For theatre I have written THE FANTASTICAL ADVENTURES OF LEONARDO DA VINCI (a commission for the International Festival of Perth, Western Australia), RENAISSANCE (a Millennium Award Winner), ISLE OF DOGS, THIRST, ALICE, CALIGULA, SWING, MOLL FLANDERS, METROPOLIS, and an adaptation of Bulgakov’s THE MASTER & MARGARITA (nominated for the best production on the Dublin Fringe and an Edinburgh Fringe First).

Theatre direction includes all the above and (amongst others) THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST (Winner of The Stage Award, Best Ensemble, Time Out Critics Choice) VOLPONE (Nominated for The Stage Award, Best Ensemble), TITUS ANDRONICUS, RICHARD III (nominated for a Manchester Evening News Award), and A MIDSUMMER NIGHTS DREAM described by the BBC online as ‘a fresh masterpiece’.

I have written and directed two feature films, MINE (a ‘breakthrough movie’ LUFF 2007) and KUNG FU FLID, the world’s first “cripsploitation’ movie, starring thalidomide actor Mat Fraser (American Horror Story). The documentary that I edited, Calabash, has been accepted as part of the official selection for the feature competition at the Moscow International Documentary Film Festival DOKer, 2015.
