Reading this section will prevent you from asking the author questions like – “So… never written for the theatre before, then ?” or “Why have you decided to branch out into film ?”
This section does not include information on work that is in development, or work that pottered along for a while and then fell over for lack of funds, or because the production company ceased to exist, or because the idea came away in everyone’s hands and left stains.
This list is not exhaustive and does not include small appearances or contributions to larger programmes. For news of any new productions that are tangible enough to mention, please consult the news section.
