NEW WRITING UPDATE - April 2019
Mayhem At Mumbles Manor - full-length script
An emotionally-awkward Lord of the Manor celebrates a three-day birthday party for his taxidermy-dog with friends from WWII in the hope of discovering his narcolepsy suffering long lost love.
This mad-capped new full-length script is ready for development. It's ready for an audience. The characters are ready to be heard. Lord Florien Thrust, his trusted longstanding companion and hunting dog, Fergus and interesting friends are waiting for their theatre curtain to rise.
A producing theatre at London Waterloo has read the new script and returned with positive feedback. I'm currently working on the script under their advice and will be resubmitting the script by the end of May. Once that deadline has passed, it will be a waiting game. I hope the outcome will provide an opportunity for the script to be produced.
Until my dream comes true, I will continue to write and work on this script and other scripts.

Lady Garden (Shelved until future funding can be secured.)
UPDATE: June 2017
An arts funding project subject matter expert has volunteered his services to assist with applying for funding for Lady Garden. This project has not been forgotten but improved. Other Creatives have been working on many professional (paid) projects, some you will know from television (to do with cars and racing and a little controversy, ok, a lot of controversies) and other stage-related tours across the UK.
I can't keep my team if I can't pay them - as I know you appreciate, this show stuff is a business.
Thank you for your patience. I will keep you updated here.
Please donate your small change to assist us to bring this production to the stage. Your generosity secures our success. Thank you.
The Lady Garden project is shelved for the moment until future funding can be secured. Current funds are locked away and safe, to be added to the project for 2017.
The Lady Garden project is designed to build and create a new piece of women’s theatre based on a framework of creative ideas outlining a story about women, for women and told by women, working on a Garden Allotment in London. The main themes will include:
Cultural and Diversity
Challenge the perception of gender
The playwright / creative producer will provide a framework of creative ideas outlining the plotline.
A female director and six female actors will be engaged to workshop the framework of creative ideas, working in collaboration to deliver a final draft, production ready, full-length stage script.
The full-length stage script will formulate a ‘stage 2 project’ plan. Funding applications for the ‘stage 2 project’ will be sought once the final draft full-length stage script has been completed with an outlook of mounting a fully staged professional production, engaging the female director and six female actors.
We are currently seeking a creator of music, someone who can write sheet music for Musical Theatre.
BRIEF: We require someone to write sheet music for one song. A West End musical theatre show tune. Just the one. The song, itself, would be used for the end of Act One, to bring down the curtain for interval. The feel and sound of the show tune would have a large cast singing and tap dancing, a good old fashioned song and dance number with top hats, tails, sequence, dresses and tap shoes.
OUTCOME: The single song show tune will be used in a TV comedy series as a Back Story element to the protagonist in the TV comedy series.
ARRANGEMENT: To start with, the single song show tune will be written for piano. Once finalised, it will need to be arranged as an orchestral movement.
INTERESTED?: If you are interested in applying for this role, please go to the Contact Us page and submit your initial contact of interest. We can discuss more details once we hear from you. Thank you.
