Dramaturgy

Just as I sometimes call on other people to help me with my plays, so I also work with other playwrights – professional and amateur – to help them develop and realise theirs.

I try to do this with a view to enabling people to write the play they want to write rather than one I might like to write myself (!) but I do bring to the table my own experience as a playwright and director.

Sessions can take place face to face, over the phone or on line and usually consist of discussion and questions about what the writer has produced – be that an outline, treatment or draft script.

Writers I've worked with in this way include Jane Buckler (The Nutcracker & The Mouse King and The Firebird), Sara Clifford (Head Over Heels and Chasing The Dragon), Tina Williams (The Big Enormous Present, The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch and Laura's Star), Heather Dunmore (Margot: A True Story) and Steven Bloomer (Anastasia: Journey To The Stars).
