Welcome to my website. I am a playwright from Melbourne, Australia. Twenty-one plays have been produced in Australia, America and England since 2002. These 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, 2014, 2015 and 2017), In The Mens (La Mama Courthouse, 2017) and Australia’s Oldest Man and Australia’s Oldest Woman at a number of American and British festivals. I have been a Writer-in-Residence at Yaddo (Saratoga Springs, New York), La Muse (France) and the Kimmel Harding Center For The Arts (Nebraska City, USA). In 2013, I won the Grace Marion Playwrights’ Fellowship through the Victorian Writers’ Centre. In 2015, I was a commissioned playwright at Monash University, Melbourne, writing and directing an adaptation of the Dr Neerosh Mudaly and Professor 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. You can find a link to the publisher in the ‘posts’ section. In The Mens, a collection of dramatic and comedic monologues, will tour regional Victoria in June 2018. Sons of Son (The Sam Phillips Story) will be performed at the Sydney Opera House Studio on Friday 7th and Saturday 8th September, 2018. NEWK! (The John Newcombe Story) will debut at The Butterfly Club, Melbourne from Monday Jan 14 to Saturday Jan 19, 2019.
