Not Games

Things I have written that aren't games. For things that are games, see Games

Stage plays

In a Handbag, Darkly

A surreal sequel to Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest.

  • cast: 5M* + 4F + puppeteer

    • * 4M is possible with doubling, but the doubled characters are frequently on stage together

Broken Holmes

An exploration of the dysfunctional relationship between Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson. (Before it was cool!)

Stitched Up

A deconstruction of the Frankenstein story in its various incarnations, performed by characters from the novel and films.

Upper Lip

A parody of the farcical stories of P. G. Wodehouse.

Audio drama

Untrue Stories

A science fiction comedy-drama in the same literary satire space as my stage plays, in which classic speculative fiction writers go on time travelling adventures and take over at least one third of one planet. The complete first season is now available.

Poetry

I have a knack for rhyming nonsense and have occasionally been published, including in Poetanoster, an anthology of poems lamenting the decommissioning of an elevator at Leicester University, and the filk music zine Xenofilkia.
