About

Welcome to my website. I am a playwright from Melbourne, Australia. Twenty-five plays have been produced in Australia, America and England. These include: Sons of Sun  – The Sam Phillips Story – (Sydney Opera House, 2014 – 2018), In The Mens (La Mama Courthouse, 2017), NEWK  – The John Newcombe Story – (Glen Street Theatre, Sydney, 2020) and The Truth is Longer Than a Lie (Various venues, 2015 – 2019).

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) and was a Grace Marion Playwrights’ Fellowship Holder 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.

In September 2020, NEWK (The John Newcombe Story) is touring regional Victoria. Sons of Sun will play Kingston City Hall in Melbourne on Friday March 5th, 2021.
