"James has just died, and finds that Purgatory isn't exactly what he was expecting. With sadness and a strange new sense of humour, he watches his wife Amelia try to cope with his departure. A bittersweet comedy (or funny drama?) about the grieving process."

Walking the Labyrinth(2007)
A musico-dramatic work for actor and electronics. Performed in the 2007 London Fringe Festival, and the 2008 Ottawa and Toronto Fringe Festivals.
"Awakening in an unfamiliar place, the wanderer must find his way through the twisting Labyrinth, and face the beast that waits at the centre. A dark, psychological re-imagining of the story of Theseus and the Minotaur, combining live and recorded speech, electronic vocal distortion, original music, and 2000-year old poetry."
