Family and Children's Theatre

"I got interested in writing for younger audiences at Contact Theatre, and whilst my own children were growing up. Children and Family audiences deserve as varied a diet of theatre as adults. Unfortunately commercial pressures mean the vast majority of plays presented for younger audiences are adaptations.  I hope one day more theatre companies will have the resources and confidence to risk more original titles. Children are an audience in their own right, and the primary purpose of presenting plays for them is not about cultivating audiences for the future but finding an entertaining way to encapsulate their experience and help them to make sense of an increasingly complex world."
