Peter made his theatrical debut in 1996 when Night of the Fox opened at the Lilian Baylis, Sadler’s Wells. Since then Peter has worked as a script reader for BBC Films, and has written opinion columns for the Times and the First Post. He also spent several years writing about reality television for the News of the World.

In 2010 along with director Paul Blinkhorn he set up Chilling Out Theatre Company, and his one act play Siren played to packed house at the Etcetera as part of the Camden Fringe.

A year later Country Life debuted at RADA, transferring to the Old Red Lion in Islington for a three week run where it obtained some very favourable reviews. described it as “Quietly entertaining, brilliantly original.” The British Theatre Guide called it a “sharply acid comedy” and Remote Goat claimed that the “dialogue recalls the understated dryness of Alan Bennett”. A Younger Theatre praised the “eloquent and really quite majestic script”, saying “it is so beautifully written that I feel as though the script would even be equally as effective on the radio”.

Well, now’s the chance to find out.
