Script Consultant

Are you a playwright? Or think you might be a playwright? Or are you an actor looking to make your own work? I am here to help. I've worked for many years as a freelance script developer, and get a huge amount of satisfaction out of working with first time and early career playwrights. 

As regards my experience in script development, I was, for two years, Literary Associate for Soho Theatre (who produced Fleabag, amongst other things), where I handled the unsolicited submissions. I have since been reading for Sonia Friedman Productions over the last ten years (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Jerusalem, and a thousand other things...). In addition to this I have worked with several playwrights as director and developer, as you can read in the testimonials below.

If you're a writer with a script and a bit of ambition, and you want to get off the mark, drop me a line. I'll provide succinct, specific notes about your work along with advice for further drafts. I'll also give you advice on where and when to send your work once it's ready.

If you're interested please drop me a line on

'Josh is one of the most provocative and innovative directors working in the UK. He strikes a remarkable balance between challenging and ushering writers through the process of writing - somehow knowing when to give space, and when to sherpa the lost through rocky terrains. To put it simply: Josh will make your play better'
