He won the Perrier award in 2004 but, lets face it, he’s hardly kicked on has he?
This work-in-progress, then, will (probably) be about failure (his).

Expect songs of the quiet hell of the gentrifier. Expect stories of staggering technical incompetence. Expect a tussle between the personal and the public that could comfortably sit on the pages of one of Arthur Miller’s early teenage plays!
(this artist also won a fringe first and was nominated for the Barry award at the Melbourne comedy festival. He was in Richard Curtis’ least successful film ‘The Boat that Rocked’ and Chris Morris’ ‘Four Lions’.
