“A tour de force” — The i Paper

I wrote my debut play, The Gaffer, in 2022, about an ageing football manager dealing with deep buried trauma. It debuted in April 2023 at the INK Festival starring Chris Larner (formerly of “London's Burning” fame).

Funded and produced by INK Productions, It went on to play at the Underbelly venue as part of the Edinburgh Fringe during Aug 2023.

Given five stars by the ipaper, it was described as a “tour de force” and a “powerful, disturbing work”. It was also listed by The Times as being one of the 40 Must See Shows At The Fringe 2023.
