“We had a great time rehearsing the play. It was just right for our group of young people with the story, the humour and the many opportunities for them to play to their different strengths.”
Youth Theatre Director on Zombie Babysitter!

“Joseph’s work for young people should be widely applauded. Not only is a piece thought-through for both the age and rehearsal groups in mind, each piece has a meaning and poignant message that is relevant to the young people of today.”
Producer, Young People’s Theatre Company

These shows are great for youth theatres and amateur dramatics groups with a large or small cast as doubling is possible. They are also available for professional companies.
I am available to deliver workshops too on themes and creating ideas for staging.
