GEORGE MICHAEL: THE PRICE OF FAME
REELZ CHANNEL, USA, 2019
Welcome to my website. I am a British playwright, screenwriter, and television producer based in Auckland, New Zealand.
My plays have been staged in London, New York and Dallas. I am perhaps best known for my work in verbatim theatre, with my drama In The Tall Grass (Bishop Arts Theatre Center, Dallas) winning Outstanding New Play in the DFW Theatre Critics Forum Awards 2018. In contrast, my popular dark comedy Almost The Birthday Party (Etcetera Theatre, London) continues to be licensed by theatre companies internationally.
Recent screenwriting work includes the hit US docudrama series The Price of Fame (Reelz Channel). I am currently writing for New Zealand soap opera Shortland Street (TVNZ 2), the nations longest-running serial drama.
As a TV producer, I have produced content for networks in the UK and USA across a variety of genres.
I am proud to be a member of both the New Zealand Writers Guild and the Dramatists Guild of America, where I serve as New Zealand Ambassador.
I lead playwriting courses and workshops in the UK, USA, and NZ, exploring the role of the playwright in theatre.

IN THE TALL GRASS
“There is a sense of urgency about this project that we couldn't ignore, especially given our political climate. A project of this magnitude very seldom comes along in a theatre’s lifespan.”
