About:

“It takes me two years to write a play, let’s write yours in two hours.” This is my challenge to the students in my workshops – which they love! "My latest play Hurricane Hill opened at the Unity Theatre in Liverpool in October last year.

"Hurricane Hill certainly remain in my memory for weeks to come. Should you get a chance to see this play in any potential future performances, you should look forward to it immensely." Sebastian Gahan.

I want to share with students this amazing period when a play is born, produced and performed. I want to demystify it all, make it totally accessible so they can capture the joy of writing and participating themselves.”

Chris's last play Charlie Bangers premiered at the Lowry Theatre in September 2011 and toured nationally in 2012. He is already writing his next play which will be produced in 2015. This will be his eigth. He’s been a playwright, director and producer and has owned his own production company since 1998.

He has toured nationally twice, had three Edinburgh Festival and three, one-month London runs during that time. He also writes poetry, radio plays, screenplays, novels and children's stories. He’s touring schools in the UK bringing creative writing to life.
