The Playwrights Database
Alan Brodie Representation Ltd
Born in the North East of England, Peter read Drama and Theatre Arts at Birmingham University before moving to London to begin an acting career. His work has included roles in FOYLES WAR for ITV, TORCHWOOD for the BBC, ROSS at Chichester Festival Theatre and WHEN WE ARE MARRIED at the Garrick Theatre. After successfully establishing himself in theatre, television and film acting - finding a particular niche in the Wars and Moustaches market - Peter began developing work as a writer. His play, LEWIS IN WONDERLAND, played to sell-out audiences at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and his comedy mini-series, THE CHARLES DICKENS SHOW was produced by BBC Arts. He has also written a number of corporate films. Current projects include THE SHANGRI-LA CLUB which is in development with Komixx Entertainment; GIVING VOICES TO THE SILENT SOLDIERS, a Heritage Lottery-supported film commission telling forgotten stories from the Great War; STRAW POLL, a comedy series set in the world of rural politics; and HELLS ANGELS, a drama series set among First World War flying aces. Peter lives in London, plays a lot of cricket (with no great skill) and retreats to the wildest countryside he can reach at any opportunity.

Lewis In Wonderland
Lewis In Wonderland
Lewis in Wonderland is, as you might hope from a play about Charles Dodgson and his most famous books, a very curious thing. It's straightforwardly biographical, in that it shows us something of the author's struggle to fit in with staid, repressive Oxford society, but it's also wonderfully fantastical. Scenes from Dodgson's life meld with vignettes from Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass: parishioners in his local church morph into the Queen of Hearts and her pitiful courtiers; silly gossips at a party suddenly transform into the talking flowers. Particularly moving is the moment when Dodgson himself becomes the White Knight, escorts Alice to the edge of Wonderland and sadly watches her leave him behind.
