In 2002 I wrote my very first play... a traditional family pantomime. My take on the panto classic Jack & The Beanstalk was first staged by Cleveland Theatre School in my native Teesside for their annual Christmas show. It was while working as a poor theatre usher at the London Palladium in 2004 that I decided to post a tiny advert in The Stage, offering a £99 'panto pack'. To my surprise, two theatre companies contacted me to purchase the script. Was it rally good enough... I wasn't sure, so I forgot about it for thirteen years and moved on. Well, in 2017 I decided to dust it off and (almost totally) re-write it. I am pleased to say that Jack is back! The script is now available to purchase from StagePlays.com and also Smith Scripts, where amateur performance rights are also available.
