Not So Funny Now

York writer, actor and director Mike Hickman wrote a very funny, moving play called “Not So Funny Now” about the women in Groucho Marx’s life. Off The Rock Productions decided to produce it, and I was brought on to provide music and SFX.


This project represented a number of firsts for me – my first foray into writing music for a musical, and first time working with York’s Six Lips Theatre. The brief from director Roxanna Klimaszewska was clear and focussed – a dark, industrial, steampunk take on Christopher Marlowe’s classic tale.

Miss Julie

Miss Julie was the second Hedgepig Theatre production I was invited to participate in, and it was an equally edifying experience. Working with many of the same people as Playhouse Creatures, I was tasked with creating a dark 1920s theme for August Strindberg’s gender-war drama.
