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

Killing Time was later invited to be part of BBrits Off Broadway and we enjoyed a fantastic month's run @59e59 NYC in spring 2019.
