I’m pleased to announce that my play ‘Look Out – He’s Got A Gun! is to be published and represented by Stage Scripts Ltd.
It becomes my 12th play published by the company which represents playwrights and their work worldwide.
‘Look Out’ is a fast-paced spoof crime thriller in which a husband and wife team are called in by a baffled Scotland yard to solve a series of mysterious kidnappings. Inspired by British films and radio serials of the 1950s, the play premiered at the Jávea Players’ Studio Theatre in December 2019 and starred a cast of talented JP stalwarts who tackled a variety of challenging roles including a crooked American, a deranged inventor and a sexy Spanish singer. The play was sold out and received very favourable reviews.
When I was taking the publicity photos for the production I planned to shoot a promotional video. Unfortunately, I was struck down by the effects of some new medication I’d been given which totally knocked me for six. I was unable to shoot the film but I have put what I did shoot into a trailer for the newly published play. It’s now available here and on Youtube.
‘Look Out – He’s Got A Gun!’ is also available as a novel on Amazon. Click here to go my author’s page on Stage Scripts. Click on the image below to view the trailer on YouTube:https://youtu.be/yYmxGdUwhW8
I'm a writer, photographer, illustrator and film-maker with a Masters degree in Multimedia & Information Design from the University of Wales, Newport. I'm also volunteer PR Officer with Newport Playgoers Society who own and run the city's 400-seater Dolman Theatre.
I trained at the London Film School where I specialised in script-writing, directing and animation, and had three films screened at the National Film Theatre. After teaching film-making, photography and art, I moved into the world of advertising and PR and was a professional writer.
My play 'According to Claudia' was selected by Newport Playgoers Society to launch their 92nd season. It won the Award for Theatre Show of the Year 2014 presented by lifestyle and entertainment magazine Voice. It has since been published by Silvermoon Publications and is available from Amazon.
Other plays I have had published include 'Poor Yorick', 'Bunkered' and 'Caddying for Godot'.
Previously my one act play 'Poor Yorick' was a winning entry in a competition run as part of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Open Stages project and was performed at both the 400-seat Dolman Theatre and Blackwood Little Theatre. Another play, 'Bunkered', was one of the winning entries in a competition judged by Welsh playwright Frank Vickery.
Congratulations Phil, well done!!!
Thankyou, Helma! x
