My plays

I specialise in comedy-drama plays that combine humour and entertainment value with social commentary.

For me the mark of a great play is that all creatives enjoy working on the script. If the actors enjoy themselves, so will the audience. With this at the forefront of my creative process I strive to create work that is entertaining, warm, bold and fun!

Here’s a list of my produced work to date, including clips from some of my short monologues for you to enjoy.
