DIRECTING/WRITING: Trainscript at Deadline : Show Us Your Shit

October 22, 2017

I was really chuffed to get Jules Brown and Christopher Hughes performing my new script 'Trainscript' as part of Two Pale Ladie's monthly night 'Deadline' at The Rosemary Branch Theatre.

It's a 9 minute script about strangers, suicide and community on the Victoria Line in real time. I'm not sure what I am going to do with it yet, I think it might be part of something bigger, but whatever it is, I am so grateful for putting it in front of some eyes.

Thanks to Lucy & Clem of Two Pale Ladies for giving me the chance to show my shit. If you've got some shit to show or indeed just want to want to watch some shit then check out Two Pale Ladies and see what they are up to next.

INTERVIEW: Illumination. The relationship between Mental Health & creativity. Harriet Williamson.

August 21, 2017

I'm really pleased to have contributed to writer/journalist Harriet Williamson's series of interviews 'Illumination'.

The series interviews creatives about their mental health, specifically how their creativity interacts with it.

The arts can be a lonely place and it can be difficult to discuss your mental health struggles openly.

I hope that by contributing and being open about my own struggle with my mental health I can help others.

Have a read if you are interested and do contact Harriet and contribute if you feel you have something to add from your own experiences.
