I am a theatre producer, teacher, and writer. My work revolves around identifying and nurturing emerging, often debut and unrepresented, playwrights, and I specialise in producing 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 have led alongside George Turvey since 2012. 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 the 2016 Alfred Fagon Audience Award and been nominated for several Off West End Awards.
I supervise MA/MFA Writing for Stage and Screen students at the Royal Central School of Speech & Drama, am a visiting lecturer at the University of York, and co-author of 'Being A Playwright: A Career Guide for Writers', which will be published by Nick Hern Books in autumn 2018.
Outside of theatre, I like cricket, obscenely long Victorian novels, and travel.
