I run a small scale touring theatre company called: Vital Xposure. I'm a playwright working with extraordinary stories from people in the periphery of our communities. 'Pig Tales' was based on the story of a female child raised as a boy - under the scrutiny of the Mental Health system and the Catholic church. The piece toured for six years. 'Crossings' was a commission for Liverpool's DaDa festival - an unashamedly feminist piece looking at sexual slavery, identity and migration. Most recent work -'The Knitting Circle' was written from authentic survivor testimonies and provides a chilling indictment of the asylums and long stay hospitals housing 'Persons fit to be removed' beyond the fringes of our cities. The latter will tour again in 2012.
