Most recent credits include developing and directing the national tour of Suggs Live (a one-man-show with the Madness frontman) and Hardeep Singh Kohli’s Indian Takeaway, a show set in a kitchen where the Sikh chef cooks a curry live on stage to compete with an ordered takeway. Other more normal directing credits include the stage premiere of How To Lose Friends And Alienate People (Soho Theatre); Grumpy Old Women (National Tour & Novello Theatre); Pete And Dud Come Again (Leicester Square Theatre); The Lady of Burma (Riverside Studios & National Tour); an open air A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Abney Park Cemetery, London); and Got To Be Happy (Bush Theatre).
