I love writing that takes audiences from the everyday to the unexpected. 

I'm a dramaturg, writer, and collaborator for stage projects. From 'proper theatre' to solo shows, comedy, autobiographical or factual, dance, and clowning around. 

I mainly work in devised settings ('what if we did this?') but have been an associate on new writing, physical theatre, Early Modern, and community projects. 
 
Currently...

...I am co-creating a solo musical(ish) with UK NO.1 singer-songwriter Jake Roche, for Edinburgh Finge 2024. 

Plus, the fifth collaboration with acclaimed theatremaker and performer Josie Dale-Jones, also for Fringe 2024.  

And, adapting an acclaimed novel for a major theatre festival in 2025. Details TBA.

Recently... 

...I adapted Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead with Complicité.

"brilliantly poached for the stage… by Laurence Cook" - The Observer

In 2023, I created an original fantasy play for young audiences at JES. It's a hero story about why we don't need heroes, we need people who can work together.

With the extraordinary this egg, I co-created a show about sex and pleasure for family audiences. It never reached public audiences because... well, you can buy me a drink if you want that story. 

Also with this egg... I helped develop motherearth, a show about ecological disaster and mums.

Lots more on the CV... if you want it then do get in touch.
 
Back in the mists of time (2012), I did the Royal Court Young Writers' Programme and now I read scripts for theatres and Playwright's Studio Scotland.
