I wrote The Colin Atkins Story for a drama group in Telford who wanted something to perform at the annual Shropshire Drama League Festival. Reviewing it the next day, the Shropshire Star said, “This marvellous comedy stole the show and most of the laughs.”

It’s A Miracle is a new play which had its premiere in this production by Leeds Arts Centre.
