My plays include ‘The Baffling Adventures of Question-Mark Man’ (Edinburgh Fringe, nominated for the Broadway Baby Bobby Award), Junk (Old Red Lion Theatre), ‘The Vegan Next Door’ (Horse and Stables Theatre), Cold Call (Pleasance Islington), ‘Bodkin’s Beans’ (Katzpace) and All Work No Play (Longlisted for the Lynne Gagliano Writers’ Award, The Royal Court).

I’ve written and performed comedy sketches for the BBC Radio Norfolk New Comedy Show. I’m an alumni of the Soho Young Theatre company, The Director’s Cut Writers club, Menagerie Young Writers workshop and Eastern Angles Young Writers Group.

I’ve also worked as a script reader for The Space Theatre and I’m currently taking part in the Mercury Theatre Playwrights 2021 playwright development scheme.

Here’s what others have said about my work.

“Fantastic and laugh out loud funny”

Mark Ravenhill on ‘The Suitor’

“An immensely enjoyable show that was jam-packed with witty puns”

The Velvet Onion on ‘The Baffling Adventures of Question-Mark Man’ – Edinburgh Fringe review.

Cold Call by Scott Younger is a fun piece, centred on a bored data management employee flirting over the phone. The solid script is elevated by Fleming’s direction and the performance of Duncan Mason… Younger has good sense of momentum and provides a nice twist

Once a Week Theatre on ‘Cold Call’ read the full review here.

This is a highly successful farce and feels like it could be a big commercial success.

The Space Theatre on ‘All Work No Play’

I loved it – entertaining from start to finish. Incredible dark humour.

Audience feedback on ‘Champagne’ at Fitzroy House.

Fabulous writing – going from humour to serious topics with nice flow.

Audience feedback on ‘Bodkin’s Beans’

This is fantastically observed piece of writing…. creating a unique and strong individual character voice for Kayla, who feels down to earth and honest in her motivations and language. [The play ends with] a beautifully crafted and well rounded conclusion that packs a nice punch

Papantango Prize 2021 Feedback on ‘The High Life’ which reached the 2nd round of reading.
