Profile

More

I am a playwright and children's writer. I have written a story about a naughty puppy who is easily distracted from learning his important job of being a guide dog and a theatre cat that guides you through Shakespeare's London. I'm working on an adaptation of Deirdre of Sorrows, taking the Irish legend into modern day and exploring the harrowing world of trafficking. I have completed a play on the lives of female prisoners being transported to Australia which is currently being reviewed by Druid theatre company - fingers crossed!
