About

Hi. Welcome to my website. I am a playwright from Melbourne, Australia. Sixteen plays have been produced in Australia and America since 2003. Recent plays include The Giraffe’s Uncle – The Les Robinson Story – (Newtown Theatre, Sydney 2011, La Mama, Melbourne 2013 and Old Fitzroy Theatre, Sydney 2014), Sons of Sun  – The Sam Phillips Story – (Various venues in Sydney and Melbourne including the Sydney Opera House Studio) and Australia’s Oldest Man (Pit Loft Theater, New York 2015 and The Players Theater, New York 2016). 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). In Melbourne, I was Bayside Council Writer-in-Residence (2009/10). In 2013, I won the Grace Marion Playwrights’ Fellowship through the Victorian Writers’ Centre. In further projects, my biographical drama/comedy about the great Australian tennis champion, John Newcombe (available through the Australian Script Centre) is circulating. It is now also a one-man show. Another new play, All The Things She Gave Me, a New Zealand/Belgian family drama can be found above. In 2015, I was a commissioned playwright at Monash University, Melbourne writing and directing an adaptation of the Neerosh Mudaly and Chris Goddard book The Truth Is Longer Than A Lie, a research investigation into child abuse. The play was published by Black Pepper Press in November 2015.
