Original plays

I'm the author of a trilogy of plays set in the 1930s and 1940s.

All Our Children, about the Nazi persecution of the disabled (premiered to great success at Jermyn Street Theatre in London May 2017; Sheen Center, New York, May 2019); Poor John, about John Cornford, the young Communist who was killed in the Spanish Civil War; and The Gift, about a family of Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany in England.  

My plays and translations are represented by Bridie Mckie at Alan Brodie Representation.
