MAN IN THE MOON

WE COULD BE HEROES / THE FALL & RISE OF LENNY SMALLMAN
Musical play, performed by Richard Lumsden, with 5 runs to date at the Arts Theatre [west end], Yvonne Arnaud Mill Theatre Guildford, Bridewell Theatre, Royal Academy of Music & London School of Musical Theatre.

"Warm-hearted and perfectly executed, with a Richard Curtis-like ability to recast old tropes in hilarious ways, and to balance them with a poignancy that, if sentimental, is joyfully crowd-pleasing.
This is great date theatre. Go along, have a laugh."
- Kieron Quirke, Time Out CRITICS CHOICE

[co-written with Paul Mari] and LENNY SMALLMAN for tv; A GOOD PLACE FOR FISHING
