I'm researching and developing a new play about the American boxer Tom Molineaux who fought for the national title in England in 1810 in front of more than 15,000 people. Over the next couple of months I will be working on the with Kate Bannister from the Jack Studio and two actors to develop the script with a little help from the Double Jab Boxing Club. I will also be running writing sessions for young refugees in Gravesend with the Red Cross and in Blackburn/Darwen with Action Factory. The R&D process is supported by Arts Council England, Jack Studio and Counterpoints Arts. More details to follow.
Yes, I'm on Twitter...
