I'm a maker of theatre. Sometimes I write, sometimes I direct, sometimes I perform. My work is immediate, playful, surprising and engaged with the world we all live in.
On this site, you can find out about my projects: past, present, future and imaginary.

me and my work
I juggle with comedy and tragedy, roughness and polish, truth and lies. I wrestle down big ideas about the world until they're small enough for us all to swallow. I want you to laugh, cry, gasp and change the world. Because we're all part of history, and that means we can all change it.
I've trained with Philippe Gaulier, the Royal Shakespeare Company, and the National Theatre Studio. I've made work for the West Yorkshire Playhouse, Red Ladder, Pilot Theatre (and myself). You can insert the words "among others" at the end of every sentence in this paragraph.
I am an Associate Artist of ARC, Stockton-on-Tees and a Lecturer in Theatre at the University of Bedfordshire.
The Times has described me as "part of the future of British theatre". My work has been described as "almost perfect" by the Scotsman; "near perfect" and "genius" by the Stage; "Fantastic" and "excellent" by the Herald; and "stylish", "terrific" and even "intelligent" by the Guardian.
Aren't people nice?
