Todd & God
Coming this SUMMER - more dates tba
A slacker atheist becomes the Chosen One. Awkward. Luckily, God has a sense of humour (she designed the penis). This is her latest start-up. This is religion 2.0.
A comedy about why we believe, that asks: what would YOU do, if you could change the world?
Can a one-night stand last a lifetime?
Two hopeful, hapless romantics can barely get breakfast – let alone get together.
In her eyes, he’s a mistake. A mistake who keeps turning up at parties. In his eyes, she’s perfect. He’s short-sighted. An achingly funny on-off love story of good intentions and bad timing.
The script is available here.

A poetry sitcom set in a greetings card company. We were lucky enough to get an amazing cast: Phil Daniels, Olivia Poulet, Jemima Rooper, Rebecca Scroggs, Russell Tovey, Sam Troughton - and me. Directed by Pia Furtado, produced by Ben Worsfield. Theme tune is Hackney Colliery Band's amazing version of Lianne La Havas' tune 'Is Your Love Big Enough.'
A story about love (and sweets, which are more reliable).
Theatre / poetry / storytelling show Skittles began life as a scratch at BAC, directed by Tim Roseman. Tim and I developed it there, then Dan Coleman took over as director and we took the show to the Nursery and Pulse festivals before heading to the Pleasance for the Edinburgh fringe. It was commissioned by Radio 4 for a 4 x 15' radio series, produced by Ben Worsfield. Retitled Richard Marsh: Love & Sweets, it won Best Scripted Comedy at the BBC Audio Drama Awards.

Mum’s dead. Annoyingly, dad’s not.
After twenty years apart, can father and son say goodbye to mum without saying hello to each other? This achingly funny story reminds us: no matter how bad life is, family can make it worse.
Me and some proper actors perform plays, poems and songs
