Writer

I'm a playwright and an academic and stuff like that...

My plays include Chekhov in Hell (Plymouth Drum, 2010), Static (Suspect Culture & Graeae, 2008), Here’s What I Did With My Body One Day (Lightwork, 2005/6), Mile End (Analogue, 2007), Beachy Head (Analogue, 2009), Theatremorphosis (Suspect Culture & CCA, 2009), Outright Terror Bold and Brilliant (NYT/Soho, 2006) and A Modest Adjustment (National Theatre, 2006). I’ve written twelve plays for BBC Radio, including Cavalry, My Life is a Series of People Saying Goodbye, and Negative Signs of Progress. I’m currently writing two plays for the Drum Theatre, Plymouth and am one of the three writers adapting the whole of Émile Zola's Rougon-Macquart for Radio 4.

I’m Professor of Contemporary Theatre (and currently Head of Department) at Royal Holloway, University of London, where I teach British theatre, playwriting, theory and philosophy, contemporary theatre, and music & performance. I supervise a number of PhDs, usually in the areas of recent British theatre and theory/philosophy. I’ve also taught classes for the Arvon Foundation, Birmingham University, Soho Theatre, Central School of Speech and Drama, Royal Court, Watford Palace Theatre and the University of Barcelona.
