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 – (Various venues in Sydney and Melbourne including the Sydney Opera House, 2014 – 2018), In The Mens (La Mama Courthouse, 2017) and NEWK  – The John Newcombe Story – (The Butterfly Club & Kingston Arts Centre, 2019).  Short works performed at a number of American and British festivals include Australia’s Oldest Man, Australia’s Oldest Woman, The Youthful Adventures of Damon Dukirk and Boccaccio Day 9 Novella Adaptation.

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 and toured  regional Victoria throughout 2018.  Currently, I am an Associate Artist with Burning House Theatre Company.
