I first developed a love of theatre as a high school student, primarily through the plays and writings of Oscar Wilde. His sense of humour, wit, and ability to surprise the audience in just a few words has inspired me my entire life.
The first play I ever wrote was a commission for the Kormilda College International Baccalaureate drama class (now Haileybury Rendall School), called "The Green Affair", and was performed to a broad audience at Caf Parap. I went on to complete two additional commissions for Kormilda. Years later I would write my first ensemble play "Last Call", intending it to be performed by Corrugated Iron. Unfortunately due to Covid this was cancelled. The play was then picked up by Inner West Drama in Sydney (April 2021) and Darwin Theatre Company (December 2021). It is a fun tragicomedy that is as enjoyable to perform as it is for the audience to watch, and I hope many more theatres perform it in years to come!
My next project is a play tentatively titled "King Paddy", a project made possible by the Australian Government's Regional Arts Fund, which supports the arts in regional and remote Australia. I also have a short comedy called "The Therapist" and a 6-person murder-mystery comedy called "Under the Table", which have yet to be performed, but I look forward to bringing to the world some time in the near future!
