Since then he has written and performed Mr. Dickens is Coming!, Nicholas Nickleby, Sketches by Boz, Sikes and Nancy, Top Hole! and Doctor Marigold.


He regularly performs in major theatres and arts centers as well as in hotels, stately homes, libraries, festivals, schools and colleges both in the United Kingdom and the United States.
