Welcome to my website where you can find out about my work as a writer and director. I'm passionate about making work that draws on classic forms and contemporary ideas to create art that speaks to its audience.
My work typically combines different forms, often including opera in some way. I am influenced by various kinds of through-sung drama, including Noh theatre and musical theatre. I also enjoy working with improvisation, interactivity, and game-based theatre.
At the moment, I'm often thinking about bargains, corruption, and eldritch rituals as a way to consider larger forces in our world, while continuing my ongoing love of comedy and heightened dramatic forms and styles from Shakespeare and Noh theatre to horror and sci-fi.
I have been a finalist for the 2022 JMK Award, while my past work has been nominated for an Offie Award, the Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award, and praised for its "punchy, energetic staging" (Opera Magazine) and for being "fresh... unlocks the mysteries" (The Guardian). It's been presented at the Royal Opera House, Scottish Opera, and the Grimeborn Festival, among others.
