When a home depot mistake breaks the separation between neighbours Sal and Ally, they are confronted anew by their co-existence. How far can neighbourly duty be pushed?



I’ve written and directed a short play called ‘Neighbours’ with Olivia Mayberry. The play is being presented by Backstage: University of Technology’s Theatre and Film Society. It will be performed on the 7th and 8th of September along with several other short plays. Come on down and check it out!

‘Neighbours’ will star Madeline Wilson and Margot Kelly. Here are some pictures of one of the rehearsals to inspire you to come.

Alongside ‘Neighbours’ you can see my talented fellow UTS Writers! Here are the rest of the shows.
