Actor & Writer

Writing

My first full length play Killing Time – a dark comedy exploring legacy, inspiration, music and the right to die – was nominated for Best New Play in the 2017 Off West End Awards.

“The script and characterisation are phenomenal- a veritable powerhouse of talent.”
★★★★ The Upcoming

Word Mills Productions was founded by myself and Brigit Forsyth (my mother), after 30 years of talking avidly together about inspiration, the arts and everything else. Killing Time was a co-production between WMP and Dead Letter Perfect and enjoyed a successful run at the Park Theatre, London in Spring 2017 before a short tour to Wales and The Lowry, Salford.

Aside from short film scripts, monologues / duologues and experiments in audio, I have been busy with my new play Oracle – a surreal comedy for a cast of eight exploring power, stories, rage and the frustrations of modern urban life.

Word Mills plans to collaborate with creatives in the digital field and Christian From (Movement Director), to explore the use of handheld projection in staging Oracle. We will be looking at making a play that can work in non- conventional theatre spaces, as well as on stage.

I would like to write for radio and podcast this year, and longer term hope to write for film and television too.
