“Married. But Lonely continues my tradition of writing original, story-based plays. I believe audiences enjoy a good story especially when this is reinforced by credible, strong characters. This production, as with my previous shows, places acting and words right up there on the front line. I direct to make both these as prominent as possible. This means that there are no escape lanes and so the writing and acting really have to work. This is a perilous but honest approach, but I am confident this new piece will be enjoyed and apreciated just as those before if have clearly been.”
