Along the way, a few of my projects have qualified to be called musicals...
Written for Worcester Sixth Form College, the play follows a group of refugees from a fictionalised version of former Yugoslavia. The play was written through devising workshops with the students themselves.
Written for Triangle Youth Theatre, Lockout is a musical version of Aristophanes, 'Lysistrata'. Music by Jan Steele, this was performed in Birmingham and then re-worked by Danny Braverman for a production by London Bubble.
Birmingham, the Musical
Written with Clive Chandler, with music by Pete Arnold. The play was part of Birmingham's centenary celebrations, and told the story of the statue of Queen Victoria coming down form her plinth and exploring the modern city of Birmingham. Starring Lorna Laidlaw, with a big cast from five schools.
Tower - a Celebration
The only play I have ever written that was never performed! Tower was commissioned by the Birmingham Hippodrome as part of its Centenary celebrations, but the theatre pulled the plug after a financial problem, just as rehearsals were due to begin. The play, aimed at a young audience, told the story of the generations of cats that inhabited the theatre over its history. It would have been great!
