LATEST UPDATES (July 2017)
Tickets are now available to see me play Bottom in A Midsummer Night’s Dream which is being staged as a promenade, open air production at Heaton Park by the award winning Feelgood Theatre (“a jewel in Manchester’s theatrical crown” – MEN). It will run from July 19th to August 6th. Pre-order your tickets here. Do come, it’s going to be fun.
My Radio 4 play The Dad Who Fell To Earth (nominated for a BBC Audio Drama Award after it was first broadcast in 2015) is to be repeated on July 30th.
I have been commissioned to write another play for Radio 4. It won’t be on until September though (I have to write it first!) but the provisional title is Grand Designs of the Third Kind. Thrilled to be embarking on another one – which will again be produced by Charlotte Riches for the Afternoon Play slot.
The Gypsies, which I recently recorded at Media City, will be broadcast on Radio 4 soon.
My Herald obituary for that fine character actor Richard Beale can be found here.
Volume Two of Running Through Corridors ia out now and available from Mad Norwegian Press or Amazon (or in the shops), whilst Dead Funny: Encore (a volume of short horror stories by comedians which features a piece by me nestling amongst works by more estimable types like Stewart Lee, James Acaster, Robin Ince and Rufus Hound) is out now.
