His play “One Starry Night” was awarded Best Play at the 2020 Edyth Brooke-Cooper Short Play Festival. It was at this festival that Maverick Director Rachel saw One Starry Night and knew immediately what a hit it would be for any theatre group to perform.
It’s ideal for a small cast who wish to tour the play around to multiple festivals or regions and it’s two characters offer a rich range of emotions and topics for actors to deeply explore. Set at the end of World War II in Australia, One Starry Night is an almost-love-story that leaves the audience wanting more!
