I am a theatre producer and writer. My practice revolves around identifying and nurturing emerging artists; I specialise in producing new plays, developing scripts and leading participation and engagement initiatives.
Most of my producing is done through the multi-award-winning Papatango Theatre Company, which I co-lead as Executive Director. I have mounted world premieres at West End and off-West End venues and on national tours, as well as transferring work internationally. Recent productions have won an Alfred Fagon Audience Award, been nominated for 9 OffWestEnd Awards, and transferred to or been remounted in a dozen countries.
I supervise MA/MFA Writing for Stage and Screen students at the Royal Central School of Speech & Drama, have lectured at the universities of Oxford, Northampton and York, and am co-author of Being A Playwright: A Career Guide for Writers, published by Nick Hern Books.
