Commission

I've been commissioned to write another play. Always good news. It's another one from the Drum in Plymouth. I had an idea for a play last year which I realised I wanted to write rather quickly. I asked Simon Stokes if he would turn my existing commission into one of this new play. Instead he decided he really wanted that other play but wanted to commission this new one as well. 

The new play is a response to the horrific revelations around Jimmy Savile's lifetime as a predatory, determined and devious paedophile and also to the complete lack of perspective or proportion in the coverage. It's also likely to be not a comedy, but something that uses comedy to crank open some of the contradictions. It's going to have to tread a very fine line.
