The Devil's Footprints (2009)

Documentary, The Met Film School

This film examines the strange phenomenon which happened in February 1855 when a 100 mile trail of footprints strangely appeared in the snow overnight across East Devon. The footprints travelled through fields, gardens, rooftops and over high walls. In this film, I interviewed a leading fortean historian, a playwright and a renowned cryptozoologist about the mystery. The film has also been screened at The Altered Images Post Production Awards 2010 for which it won an award for Best Documentary 2010. It has was also selected for screenings at the London International Documentary Festival, Bestival, Latitude, The Loch Ness Film Festival and the Weird Weekend Festival.

and by special arrangement with Fiery Angel Ltd. London

Criminal mastermind, Professor Marcus, and his gang of oddball villains posing as musicians, meet their match when they take up residence in the top floor room of Mrs Wilberforce’s dilapidated house. A convenient location to plan their heist, they figure their sweet-natured old landlady will be easily hoodwinked. But beneath her demure exterior, Mrs Wilberforce is made of sterner stuff and, with just her parrot, General Gordon, for moral support, she turns the tables on the bogus quintet.

Laurel & Hardy (2014)

Trailer, The Watermill Theatre

Applauded by audiences and critics around the world, this hugely successful play is touching, funny and often  surprising.  It tells the fascinating, behind the silver screen story of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy – the most successful movie double-act. As they recall their lives, the memories are interwoven with some of their best-loved sketches and songs in a high energy, continent-crossing journey.

Laurel and Hardy had an extraordinary influence of some of the world’s greatest comedians. They kept the world entertained with their slapstick, songs, pratfalls and most of all, their wit and boundless charm. But, like any partnership, there were squabbles as well as successes along the way. The Hollywood studio system, the girlfriends and wives, the theatre managers and unscrupulous producers are all conjured up at breakneck speed. From Vaudeville, through silent movies and the talkies, their moving and madcap life stories unfold. Standby for another fine mess of tears, smiles and the odd custard pie.

Journey's End (2014)

Trailer, The Watermill Theatre

Just before Germany’s spring offensive in 1918, British officers are in a dug-out on the front line. Keen young officer Raleigh joins the company and finds Stanhope, his old friend, much changed. Trying to create some sort of normality amidst the horror, are Trotter, who is furious about how the war has interfered with his meal times, Hibbert, who is trying to find a way to escape, and Osborne, who would rather be tending his garden.

Journey’s End is an unflinching portrayal of men facing the unbearable but finding the camaraderie to keep on fighting. R C Sherriff wrote this powerful, moving play based on his own experience in the trenches and The Watermill revives it in this First World War centenary year.

In pursuit of the American Dream, Joe Keller, a manufacturer of aircraft parts, makes a decision that has tragic repercussions. An ordinary, decent, hard-working man, he is driven to provide generously for his family. But Joe is in denial. So too is his wife, who in the aftermath of World War II, clings to the belief that their pilot son, Larry, reported lost in action, is still alive.

An apple tree, planted in the garden as a memorial to Larry, is ripped apart in a storm. It marks the moment when the truth about the past can no longer be suppressed and the honesty or guilt of Joe’s actions finally play out.

of the finest playwrights of the Twentieth Century.
