Playwright

I’ve written four plays.

The first, All Our Children, about the Nazi persecution of disabled children, was premiered at Jermyn Street Theatre in London 2017. It is receiving its US premiere in 2019 at the Sheen Center in New York.

All Our Children is the first in a trilogy bout the 1930s and 1940s. Poor John is about John Cornford, the young British Communist who died aged 21 in the Spanish Civil War The Gift is concerned with Jewish immigration into Britain in the late 1930s.

I’ve also written an adaptation of Sara Ryan’s Justice for Laughing Boy.
