Rachel and Stephen
Working in the Following Genre:
A father and daughter team
Stephen writes pantomimes in collaboration with his daughter Rachel. "A father and daughter writing team works well," he says, "because we both benefit from different perspectives." They began writing together when the local amateur dramatic group, to which Stephen belonged, wanted to put on a youth production. Stephen directed the pantomimes, and Rachel did choreography and played various parts. They both agree that working together means allowing the other to be a critical editor, or as Stephen explains "I tell Rachel how to structure a scene, and how to plan a character arc, and then she tells me how to make it funny."
Background information
Stephen is "around 50" and lives near Southampton. He has worked at various times as a psychiatric nurse, a gardener, a relief postman and an overnight parcel sorter. He writes blogs, magazine articles and plays of varying degrees of seriousness. He is currently learning Welsh, and can now say "Dw i'n dysgu Gymraeg."

Rachel is the youngest of five children, and says growing up with four older siblings made her both resilient and determined. She decided when she was three that she wanted to be a ballerina, and never changed her mind. She is currently working with Mystic Ballet in Connecticut, USA. She loves dogs and doesn't feel her life is complete without one.
