My Boy - my debut play, in a set of four by different writers, exploring love as a theme; chosen by Crave Arts for performance in their 'Whisper to Voice' project, giving new writers a platform.

My Boy pays homage to my northern roots. It is set in Royton, a Lancashire mill town in 1933. Focused on a family's relationships, this historical lens explores the outcome of authoritarian parenting. A father and daughter are haunted by consequences of past choices.

It is a case of: 

'Be careful what you wish for'...
