Skittles went on from Edinburgh to be commissioned for Radio 4 as Richard Marsh: Love & Sweets, and won Best Scripted Comedy at the BBC Audio Drama Awards. My poetry sitcom Cardboard Heart was on Radio 4 last year.
Wingman played at the Edinburgh fringe, Soho Theatre and iO West in LA and is in development for TV with Big Talk / CBS Studios.
I'm working on a musical adaptation of Son of Rambow for the Nuffield Theatre. Miranda Cooper, Nick Coler, Sam Hodges and I have spent several years adapting this brilliant film for the stage. A film that I love, and a process I have loved. It ran at The Other Palace theatre in a workshop production May-June this year - more TBC.
I'm a former London poetry slam champion and one of the Time Out Culture 100.
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 show recently ran in the West End, starring Ayesha Antoine and Felix Scott.

Katie and I began writing together due to both living in Tooting and a shared love of love stories. But mostly because we both lived in Tooting.
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
I can write poems for birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas parties, and weddings. That couple above? Did their whole ceremony. Get married by Marsh, it sticks. They're still very happily together two whole months later. If you'd like to know more about commissioning me or booking me for an event, please get in touch.
It said I had to do this. I don't know what I'm doing, but I promise to keep your privacy private. I hope you find this reassuring.
