There's going to be an evening of new writing at The Union Theatre on Sunday September 7 (commencing at 8pm) - THE WRITERS' PLAYGROUND, produced by Fairground Theatre (who recently staged the acclaimed new musical THE HOMEFRONT at the Union Theatre).

The featured songwriters will include Dan Looney (The Confession Room) and Finn Anderson (Streets, Alba). And I'm delighted to announce that some songs with my lyrics will also be showcased during the concert - including songs I've recently co-written with actor/singer/songwriter Rob Eyles as well as songs from the musical MY LAND'S SHORE (co-written by Christopher J. Orton and me).
