When we first started to explore the leap from theatre to film, we had nothing but passion drive and commitment. For over 20 years our theatre audiences had been saying "This would look amazing on film" or "lmagine if this was a movie, your vision would be limitless". So I guess I was waiting for the right project, the stage production that would make the prospect of film making a viable reality. Then the universe threw me not one but two chances to leap and here I am. ln early January 2017, I met film maker Tom Williams, from Human Element Productions, who came to shoot the very cinematic promo for our play ONCE A YEAR ON BLACKPOOL SANDS. The filming was done on location and not in a theatre and we all, cast and crew, quickly realised WE HAD TO MAKE THIS FILM!! The play has gone on to win awards, tour the UK and play Off-Broadway. Productions are also planned for Sydney and Toronto. However, this powerful true LGBTQ slice of long forgotten history needs a world wide audience and this can only be done on film. The second play that has now become a screen play is ALL THE BEAUTIFUL MONSTERS, based on the Off Broadway production "Beautiful Monster", a highly inventive and original slant on the final hours in the life of Mary Shelley and the Romantics. Both of these film projects are green lit. Shooting commences on ONCE A YEAR ON BLACKPOOL SANDS in October 2018. Tom and l carry 20 years of experience between us. These stories and your support are in very safe hands..So, in essence, I am a creator of original theatre, film and musicals, mostly with an LGBTQ slant. Or, if not, then a story that champions people without a voice. You can help me keep telling stories. I write queer. I write for women. I write to inform and entertain. I am, simply put, a teller of stories.
