Mainly write plays but also have a film part completed and an outline for something that could work as either a film or play. Undecided. The film is called "Syndromes" and involves PTS syndrome, terrorism and coming to terms with 7/7. The undecided is based on a historical case of a woman whose husband tried to have her sectioned, ostensibly because she dabbled in spiritualism, but mainly because he wanted control of them money. A theme that allows Conan Doyle to be a character involved. I am attending a Phil Setren workshop at the St. James Theatre in February and can recommend his workshops, which set interesting exercises and allow for discussion.
I am a retiree but was in a previous incarnation a college lecturer. I have been writing plays for amateur performance for some time. Have been involved in amateur and fringe theatre for even longer. College got desperate and I'm back at work.
