Plays and Screenplays

If you’re in high school in Australia, and you study drama, there’s a good chance that you’re looking for details about Falling Petals, which was a fairly controversial production when it premiered in 2003 in Melbourne. Or you may have seen it in New Zealand or the United States. Or you may be thinking about acquiring the rights to a European premiere. If not, please think about being in Europe and doing a production of it. That’s on the bucket list.

Here’s a fairly comprehensive list of what else I’ve done as of August 2017 (more links to come)
