24 Hour Dance Project Melbourne Fringe - A Reflection

I attended a really special event as part of Melbourne Fringe Festival 2018 and wrote a piece called Dancing with Strangers about it for Witness Performance.


Once Were Pirates

My new play Once Were Pirates is premiering at Melbourne Fringe Festival, presented by Darebin Arts Speakeasy.

Shane and Gareth used to be pirates. Now they are stuck in the real world, trying to figure out how to live. A tale of two bad men trying to make good.

A brand new play by Emilie Collyer (2013 Fringe Best Emerging Writer, 2013 Green Room Nominee), directed by Daniel Czech, featuring Ben Clements and James Cook.

She has one job: to care for an elite robot prostitute. He is the maintenance man who repairs it. Life for both of them has been simple and regulated. Until now. The Good Girl is a black comedy set in the future. It’s about sex and ambition and getting ahead. Whatever it takes.

This is the second production from new independents PONY.CHILD (following Danny and the Deep Blue Sea @ 1000 Pound Bend in March). 


Word/Play at Melbourne Fringe Festival

I'm one of a bunch of authors reading work to inspire improvised scenes at this great little season. A new format created by the folk at Impro Melbourne.

Especially special because I was a member of Impro Melbourne for many years and used to perform regularly with this talented bunch.



A special guest author joins Impro Melbourne each night with a book of original works, which inspire improvised scenes and stories from the actors—it’s a
different show every night with truly unique results.

Guests include published local authors from a wide variety of genres and disciplines providing a diverse range of stimulus for the stage. Come and take the leap from the page to the stage in an instant with Impro Melbourne Theatre.
