January 2019 - Hot off the press! My play, Blast from the Past is being performed at the Questors Theatre in Ealing by the talented drama group Theatre West Four, for 6 performances from 14th - 18th May 2019. 

Take one actor who wants to act; a brother, daughter and neighbour who want him to; another daughter who doesn't, and an actor - who can't! The scene is set for a poignant, humorous and uplifting drama about family relationships, ageing and hope. 

Widower Tim has set his heart on an acting role before he retires and although he is aware of recent memory problems, is trying his best to stay positive. While visiting his brother, he receives details of an audition but with strong opposition from one of his daughters, and self doubt returning, he considers cancelling his audition. With encouragement from his neighbour, he attends with his other daughter, where he meets an actor with whom he had previously worked. 

Can Tim begin to find his inner confidence and believe that there may be a chance to act for one final time? Tickets can be booked via the theatre at www.questors.org.uk/whatson. Watch this space for further updates...

In October 2018 I performed in the Watford Fringe (watfringe.com), singing a selection of covers and original songs on the guitar.

I am currently writing and recording new songs which have a fresh, contemporary pop/ballad feel, with specific singers and publishers in mind, and enjoying submitting scripts for radio drama and play competitions.

In July and September 2018 I performed a selection of original songs on the guitar (now in my 7th year!) and chatting about what inspired me to write them, in the conservatory at Broomfield Park.

In December 2017 my play, Blast from the Past was discussed by the terrific group of actors and writers at The Script Readers writers workshop at Theatre Royal Stratford East. With many new and exciting ideas explored, I am developing this script further, with the aim of seeing it produced.

In July and September 2017 I performed a set of covers and original songs on the guitar in the conservatory at Broomfield Park.

In September 2016 I wrote and performed a short scene with two actors at the Cockpit Theatre, NW8. Blast from the Past is an uplifting story showing the main character's life as an actor and his acceptance of change towards the 'winter' of his life. Following encouraging feedback from the audience and from a professional playwright, I am adapting this into a full length play.  

In April and September 2016 I performed as 'resident musician' in the tranquil and acoustically pleasing setting of the 1930s conservatory in Broomfield Park, Palmers Green.

In January 2016 I performed in 'Looking For You' for three performances at Pantameters Theatre, Hampstead. The show was a musical journey of three couples and their encounters with love. This was a staged showcase of musical, jazz and contemporary songs, written by and performed with Sue Van Colle, a talented published composer/lyricist/pianist. We had previously performed this show in October 2015 with an 11 piece classical orchestra.
