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), The Kimmel Harding Center For The Arts (Nebraska City, USA) and Crexida Teatro (Bologna, Italy).

In 2015, I was a commissioned playwright at Monash University, Melbourne, writing and directing an adaptation of the Dr Neerosh Mudaly book The Truth Is Longer Than A Lie, a research investigation into child abuse. The play adaptation was published by Black Pepper Press in November 2015.

In show news, Sons of Sun will play Kingston City Hall in Melbourne on Friday March 5th, 2021 and The Globe Theatre, Winchelsea on Saturday 6th March.
