LIVERPOOL LUNCHTIME THEATRE

Literary Director / Writer

Liverpool Lunchtime Theatre was a new writing company founded in 1982. It produced original plays by new writers from across the North West of England and beyond, and received commissions for Liverpool's Capital of Culture programme in 2008. It was re-named The New Works in 2007.

I was the organisation's Literary Director, helping dramaturgically to develop new writers and commissions, working with emerging writers from Liverpool John Moores University, and reading and reporting on speculative submissions.

I was also commissioned by the company in 2006 to write the play Red, which toured the UK, and is published by Nick Hern Books.
