👋 I’m Arthur.
I call myself a playwright.
I love the word wright - it's so strange. It feels like it should be spelled ‘write’, right?
What is a ‘wright’?
“[A] little-used word referring to one who constructs or repairs something. It also appears in shipwright, which refers to a person who builds ships.”
I’m a constructor and repairer of play. Isn’t that a cool thing to do?
My plays include lots of interesting things that take my fancy.
I write mainstage theatre shows like On the Upside Down of the World or Voices of Gallipoli that are performed all over the world.
I write, collaborate and create TV shows and films that are screened far and wide, and/or trapped in development purgatory.
And I write this, chatty, behind-the-scenes insights into my inspirations, perspirations and delightful distractions.
I send it out once a week on a Wednesday.
