I've had work produced at the Old Vic, the Bush, Soho Theatre & Arcola. My debut play transfered to Londons West End.

In 2013, Howard Brenton picked me to launch Playwright Presents a new initiative in which established writers use their stature to help launch the career of a promising new writer.

LAND OF OUR FATHERS - my debut full length play opened in September 2013 to critical acclaim at Theatre 503. The production received 5 Off West End Award nominations including Best New Play & was published by Methuen. The play transfered to the Trafalgar Studios in September 2014.

I won a Bruntwood Award for my second play The Rolling Stone which opened at The Royal Exchange (Main House) in 2015 directed by Ellen McDougal and was published by Methuen. The play will be transfering to London in January 2016.

I'm  currently writing a feature film with Andrew Haigh (Weekend/ 45 Years) attached to direct.

I was invited to be part of Headlongs first writer's group and recently finished an attachement at the National Theatre Studio.
