About

Welcome to my website. I am a playwright from Melbourne, Australia. Twenty-three plays have been produced in Australia, America and England since 2002. These include: Sons of Sun  – The Sam Phillips Story – (Various venues in Sydney and Melbourne including the Sydney Opera House, 2014 – 2018), 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. From September 2018 onwards until the end of the year it is touring regional Victoria and outer metropolitan Melbourne. You can find all the tour dates in the ‘posts’ section of this site.

To begin the new year, NEWK! (The John Newcombe Story) will debut at The Butterfly Club, Melbourne from Monday Jan 14 to Saturday Jan 19 followed by a performance at Kingston Arts, Melbourne on Friday February 1st.

Currently, I am an Associate Artist with Burning House Theatre Company.
