These are some small blogs that are meant for me to figure out what I want to make. Read if you want. They're not that interesting.

When I first started writing I remember very clearly being really intimidated by an actor who had been in a show at the Bush because she had been in a show at the Bush. I remember talking to her and her talking down to me because I hadn't been in a show at the Bush (or...

I don't usually read novels. I read a lot plays and film scripts but very rarely novels. I read a lot of non-fiction. I see it as how I grapple with the world; learning about other peoples experiences and big ideas. Usually these books become plays or films or what eve...

Right then fuckers.... It's here... The blog no one asked for and no one will read but there we go. It's my quick response to watching T.O's production of Hamlet from the Schaubühne.

Yesterday there was an article in the Stage about being radical and not pandering to an establishment. A director, and friend, I really admired shared it on twitter and said "yes". I responded with haste and, admittadly, no consideration and gave one side of my argumen...
