I've been writing plays for the stage since 1982. I began learning my craft and art whilst reading Theatre Studies at the University of Lancaster under the guidance and support of course leaders, Professor Keith Sturgess and Margaret Eddershaw who have since become lifelong friends.


This page provides a snapshot of my highlights with links to individual pages which provide more information.


TRAILER/trash - Arts Council funded to R&D stage after many years of private development.  Two misfits find love and acceptance in an otherwise hostile world,  National tour planned for November 2019 - please see www.trailer-trash.org for more.


KING'Sex - another Monorogue offering at The Hen & Chickens, London, starring Mary-Ann Cafferkey as my Lucie D'Charcoal.


4* Fairy Powered Productions review

The standout monologue, full of filthy slang from across the centuries is Mike Elliston’s ghost, Lucie D’Charcoal, performed by Mary-Ann Cafferkey. There is barely room to catch your breath between the jokes as Cafferkey describes, in hysterically coarse detail, her time as King Louis’ mistress.


ONCE BITTEN....new for April 2017, a tragic-comedic 7 minute monologue as part of Monorogue Productions "Wheel Of Misfortune" at The Old Red Lion, London.


THE STAIRS - short comedic monologue as part of Monorogue Productions Halloween special, "Into The Darkness".


PERU - an epic, surreal modern day trilogy (in development) set in Peru, Illinois, where "normal" defies all conventions.


DEAD - a re-imagining of Ibsen's "When We Dead Awaken" presented at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.


QUEEN WITH ROTTING TEETH - information to be updated soon.


BREAD 'N' BUTTER GUNS - Fringe First and NSDF award winning play set during the height of The Troubles in Northern Ireland.
