The Trials of Frankie Flynn (2010)

Following its great success at the Irish Centre in London this play transferred to the Courtyard Theatre.

A hugely funny and engaging comedy, written by Peter Hammond and directed by Katherine Reilly, it centres on the opinionated and downtrodden Frankie, played by Owen Nolan. (23.05.14. I was very saddened to hear of the recent passing of Owen, pictured on the right. He was a joy to work with, a true professional and a lovely man. The stage has lost a big talent and the world a good soul.)

I played “PJ”, a dodgy bloke Frankie meets down the pub.

Waterton’s Wild Menagerie (2010)

A segment of this play, written by David Bottomly and directed by Daniel Burgess, was staged at Theatre 503 in Clapham, London, as part of the London Playwrights' Collective evening.

The cast consisted of Andrew Jarvis as Waterton, Ray Lonnen, Paul Thomas and David Meyer.

I played Godpey Binns, surely one of the best character names ever!

David later completed this inspiring play.

Showtime (2010)

Written by K A Curry, this was part of "Sitcom Saturday", a series of staged readings of "six new bite-sized sitcoms" at the Westminster reference Library. It was organised by Real Deal Theatre.

The evening went really well, with "Showtime" having a great reception.

I played Raymond Wainwright, the owner of a 1960s club in Yorkshire.

It was directed by Rob Watt. The other members of the cast were David Cullinane, Alice Bell and Chris Allen.
