A quick summary of my work at the moment.

Lioness Theatre's first showcase on 27.1.18 went very well, with healthy attendance. Feedback was the most important part of that event, and we got plenty, with some useful suggestions to consider as well as a lot of positive encouragement. We now feel ready to arrange a similar showcase in Manchester.
To the many people who have told me since that my songs are now stuck in their heads, I sincerely apologise :)
As well as working with Liz Kearney and Brian Morrell over at Lioness Theatre, I've recently had experience of devising, composing, and doing sound design for two groups associated with the Open Exchange network at the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester. So far, this has been really exciting to be involved in, and has opened my eyes to how quickly ideas can come together when you collaborate equally as part of a group.
There's also a possibility I might have some involvement as a sound designer in this year's SheFest in Sheffield. Looking forward to that.
As a writer, I'm looking to develop my skills by taking part in this year's "28 Plays Later", run by Theatre Deli. The challenge is to write a new (presumably very short) play each day. It can be utter garbage so long as you submit something - but if you miss a day, you're disqualified! I have no doubt that I have very little chance of making it through to the end of the month, but I'm just seeing it as a bit of a prompt to write more.
Lioness Theatre is currently organising performances of my new play with songs, "The Black Stuff". There are several possibilities in the pipeline, so please check back for updates
