My first radio play, The Confessions, was broadcast on Radio 4, and had good reviews. The cast were excellent, especially John Castle.
‘… a taut, saucy and claustrophobic dynamic between four characters tangled up like fingers in a cat’s cradle. “Yes, it is a bit on the naughty side,” one character said of an artwork he was valuing, “but it’s nicely done.” So, too, was Charlotte Greig’s play, set in the art world and featuring a cheery background of sadomasochistic, masochistic and sadistic relationships. These were all reflected in readings from Rousseau’s Confessions, with its pithy phrases (“dark and dirty labyrinth”) underlining developments between the couples. What distinguished this from many an afternoon play was that you couldn’t guess where it was going: it wasn’t clear until the very end who was going to be the victor in this classily produced and well-performed battle of wills.’ Guardian
Against the Grain
My second radio play is set in rural France and concerns a pig, a truffle hunt, guns, haute cuisine, and a thrilling romance. It draws inspiration from Joris-Karl Huysman’s A Rebours,, a late nineteenth-century tale of decadence, ennui, and art for art’s sake. Mais oui!
