Hello and welcome to my website.

 

Headshot 4 - 2016I’m an actor and a writer. Originally from Leicester, I now live in London with a washing machine that looks like Darth Vader.

As a writer, I’ve adapted three of David Walliam’s marvellous children’s books for national tours, as well as several other novels and having my own independent plays produced. My first novel has just been published.

The Rainbow Player - final cover design

It’s called The Rainbow Player and concerns an England footballer who has a gay relationship. You don’t have to be gay or a football fan to enjoy it; it’s a coming-of-age story that will hopefully make you laugh a lot and cry a little, and that underlines the fact that it is not the gender of the person you love that matters, it is who you love. There are more details on ‘The Rainbow Player’ page.

As an actor, I’ve had the privilege of being directed by Jack Shepherd in the London premier of his play, Half Moon, and among other roles, have played Elyot in Private Lives, Lawrence in Abigail’s Party, Angelo in Comedy Of Errors and Guy Burgess in An Englishman Abroad.

 I’m a huge fan of Rugby, Poetry, Tennis, Books, Football, Fitness, The Famous Five, Music (Meat Loaf to Mozart), Meditation, Cornwall, and sitting on a flat roof on a summer’s night with friends, a bucket of Merlot, and a somewhat over-active imagination, putting the world to rights.

If you would like to contact me, please use the ‘Contact Page’ on the site; I’d love to hear from you.

Best wishes and much happiness to you,

David
