SKERRYVORE: A TALE OF TERROR enjoyed a successful run at the Barnstaple Festival in summer ’19, following on from its appearance at the London Horror Festival. I am proud to be under commission again to the Guthrie Theatre and the University of Minnesota for a new work to be produced in 2021.



The new book CONTEMPORARY GOTHIC DRAMA: Attraction, Consummation and Consumption on the Modern British Stage was published by Palgrave in autumn 2018. It contains an interview with me about my work across the genres of the supernatural. It’s available here:
