Conor is a graduate of Central School of Speech and Drama, and completed his MA in Dramatic Writing with distinction at Drama Centre, Central Saint Martins (2018), where tutors include John Yorke, Rob Drummer and Lucy Kerbel and Tony Clarke.
Conor is from Manchester and has been living in London for the last five years. A lot of Conor’s work is rooted in northern communities, and he is passionate about giving regional characters more of a voice both in theatre and on screen.
Conor is particularly interested in exploring the human stories behind larger themes in subjects often deemed taboo or dark in nature and finding everyday humour and humanity within a story.

It went on to have a sell out preview at Theatre503, before playing for the full month at 2017 Edinburgh Fringe where it received 4 and 5 star reviews and transferring to The Drayton Arms in London for a week’s run (November 2017).
In October 2017, Conor was commissioned to write a monologue by BBC Radio 1Xtra and BBC Writersroom. MORNING AFTER was shown online and also live in Manchester during BBC 1Xtra Live 2017.
