From 1997-2002 I was co-director of The Weird Sisters theatre company with Alison Goldie. We devised and produced three shows that toured nationally and internationally, winning 5 international theatre awards. Together we wrote the comedy dramas It’s Uncanny! and Loveplay, and with Cal McCrystal the sketch show The Weird Sisters Get Around.
