About

I’m a playwright from Melbourne, Australia who has had fifteen plays produced nationally. Recent plays include The Giraffe’s Uncle – The Les Robinson Story – (Newtown Theatre, Sydney 2011 and La Mama, Melbourne 2013) and Sons of SunĀ  – The Sam Phillips Story – (Various touring venues around Sydney and Melbourne). I have been a Writer-in-Residence at Yaddo (Saratoga Springs, New York), La Muse (France) and the The Kimmel Harding Center For The Arts (Nebraska City, USA). Locally, I was Bayside Council Writer-In Residence in 2009/2010. In 2013 I won the Grace Marion Playwrights’ Fellowship through the Victorian Writers’ Centre. Currently, my biographical play about John Newcombe is circulating with hopes for a 2014 or 2015 production. A number of smaller plays are also currently being worked on.
