Comic mysteries
For his comedy/mystery scripts, Richard has created a new English county, and has gradually been filling in its history and geography, via scripts such as 'The Ghosts of Marvin Grange', 'The Affairs at Meddler's Top', 'The Fumblings at Friar's Bottom', 'The Riddles at Ramshackles Rest', 'The Clamourings at Giggly Halt', and 'The Perils at Peddler's Cove'.
Short Pants
'Short Pants' is Richard's series of short rhyming pantomimes, Which are available as individual scripts or as a complete set. In addition, he has also written full-length pantos.
Famous Tales
Richard has also written some rhyming versions of famous story-lines, which are superb for small classes of children. They include 'Wind in the Willows', 'Alice in Wonderland', and 'The Knights of the Square Table', the story of Camelot. Richard believes that the art of live performance, and certainly amateur productions should be encouraged. His scripts leave room for improvisation and adaptation.
