How exciting – A Play for the Nation’s Youth

I’m so pleased. My play ‘Simeon’ has been ‘highly commended’ (yes that’s commended with extra on top) in the ‘A Play for the Nation’s Youth,’ competition run by Salisbury Playhouse, Nick Hern Books and BBC Writersroom. I am so chuffed. The play had to consist of 20 plus teen characters. My play is about two young men, both part of a tragic situation as young children, who meet again as a group of young people from a Pupil Referral Unit visit a local independent school for a talk. I loved writing it and got so carried away in Costa Coffee doing it that, on racing back to my car to collect children from school, I had a massive parking fine. Sadly I didn’t win as that really would have justified the fine. Still, winning anything where writing is involved is a miracle and I’m delighted my play even got a mention. For details see here
