Working in the Following Genres:
One-Act Plays
Sketches, Skits or Very Short Plays

William enjoys writing challenging scripts for audiences, actors and directors. Fundamentally underpinning this is a powerful story as evinced by Relief. Wit and humour deliver the contrast, seen in his playful use of rhyming pentameter in A Frame That Fits. Both are here on Lazy Bee Scripts.

For five years William was the weekly drama reviewer for the Reading Post. Funded by the Arts Council, he was dramaturg in residence at a girls’ secondary school resulting in a controversial youth play on drugs that toured local schools. His stories and poetry have won a series of awards including The Bridport Prize.

William’s play scripts have also been acclaimed. Guernica Goodbye (picture above) was a triple award winner for Progress Theatre at the Henley-on-Thames Drama Festival, receiving Best Actor, Best Actress and Production. It picked up another Best Actress Award for Seesaw Productions in the Pembrokeshire Drama Festival. No Picnic, William’s first play, was considered by Samuel French to have ‘a disincentive to many groups’. It’s first production won Best Actress Award for the Windsor Theatre Guild.

When not at the table, keyboard or dining, William can be found on his knees in his garden, totally given over to vegetables, or on his toes dancing and teaching modern jive and ballroom.
