has been a teacher pretty well all of his life, specialising in
Chemistry and Youth Theatre, an unlikely combination, but one which
has worked brilliantly. He
has directed a number of successful straight plays and musicals,
including ‘The Crucible’, ‘West Side Story’, ‘Fiddler on
the Roof’ and ‘The Entertainer’.
writing credits include short stories and poetry for a number of UK
publications. He also
writes drama having had a pantomime produced at the Rutherglen
Repertory Theatre near Glasgow and a play at the Traverse Theatre in
Edinburgh. He is a bit
mystified by the success in Scotland since he comes from the other
end of the country.
