Michael writes happily for both children and adults. He knows that audiences of all ages respond to a compelling story and he’s always plugged into what’s working well across various media.
Michael was a regular contributor to BBC Daytime’s long running popular series DOCTORS (2002-2011), first in a writing partnership with Richard Stevens and latterly on a solo basis. He wrote for BBC Scotland’s soap RIVER CITY from 2007-08.
Work in children’s television includes: SOMETHING SPECIAL 8 for CBeebies (2012); GIGGLEBIZ – children’s tv über-personality Justin Fletcher’s sketch show Series 1 and 2 (2010-2011) and Christmas Special 2010, on which Michael was lead writer; and Ludorum’s computer-animated CHUGGINGTON (CBeebies, Series 2, 2011 and development work, Series 3, 2013).
Stage work includes STAND FAST directed by Matt Steinberg as part of Rapid Write Response at Theatre 503 (June 2016); BLIND (shortlisted for Little Pieces of Gold, 2016); and IN LOCO PARENTIS (originally showcased as part of Little Pieces of Gold at the Southwark Playhouse, directed by Saul Reid, September 2014).
