Tim’s first piece of writing that isn't a play is The VHS Diaries, a hybrid memoir recording his experiences leaning German (badly) in Germany. His first play, EuroVision, was produced by Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber at the Vaudeville Theatre in 1994, and, since then, he’s written for the National Theatre Studio (The Schuman Plan), the Royal Court (The One You Love), the Orange Tree (Hungry Ghosts), LAMDA (The Second World), RADA (The Quickest Light) and Hampstead Theatre.
Pig was produced at the Buddies in Bad Times in Toronto in 2013 and Map of the Region was shortlisted for Manchester Royal Exchange’s Bruntwood Prize in 2011. In addition to original work, all four of his Jane Austen adaptations (Northanger Abbey, Persuasion, Mansfield Park and Emma) have been produced. Emma premiered in summer 2017 and had a national tour. Northanger Abbey was revived in Chicago in 2013 and enjoyed another successful UK tour in the spring this year. In 2018, his new adaptation of Turn of the Screw will open in Colchester prior to a tour next year.
Tim is also a director, and his productions have been seen in the West End, all over the UK, on and off Broadway, and in the Netherlands, Japan and Sweden. His London directing credits include Easy Virtue (Garrick), Private Lives (Aldwych), Artist Descending a Staircase (Duke of York’s), The One You Love (Ambassadors), Hungry Ghosts (Orange Tree), EuroVision (Vaudeville), The Merchant of Venice and Volpone (Lyric, Hammersmith) and Relative Values (Savoy). His published plays are: The Schuman Plan and Northanger Abbey for Nick Hern Books, Persuasion and Mansfield Park for Oberon, and Amateur Rites and Kimalia for Stagescripts.
