Hi all,

Some of you might remember me from before. I certainly remember Thain, Edd and Paddy.

In 2009, I quit my day job to pursue my two passions, theatre and academics. I was called all kinds of a fool, of course. I was 44, had no savings and was pretty much unemployable in very many sectors, people half my age becoming managers in call centres, et. al.

About two days after I quit my job I got a call from a school. They needed what I thought was one play. It turned out they needed ten musicals. I agreed to deliver. And I did.

Between 2009 and 2011 I wrote around 30 scripts and 300 songs for schools.

I continue to write musicals for schools and also write forensic pieces for students who undertake the Trinity Guildhall examinations in Acting.

How have you all been?

Deepak,

Of course I remember you.

This makes my heart sing!

Congratulations.

Hope you get many, many more years out of what is your true love and true vocation.

I liked your website.
