Allen's Work

 

About the Playwright . . .

I have been writing for a living for the past 40 years. Most of my work has been as a playwright. My plays were commissioned by various bodies, ranging from Theatre Companies, Educational Bodies, Community Groups and major Corporations.

I also have a large number of Theatre/Restaurant style shows available for production. Fees for these shows are by negotiation.
