John Waterhouse – Playwright and Author

Bespoke Plays

If you have any requirements regarding a bespoke play or are interested in commissioning a new work, I will be pleased to look at all enquiries.
Some examples of commissioned works:-
The-Waiting-Room-150x150 Port
Some years ago, I was asked to write a play for the Salford Arts Theatre Youth group and the result was ‘The Waiting Room’ which went onto to be successfully published by Lazy Bee and performed by Youth Theatre companies in Lisbon (as ‘A Sala de Espera’), Luxembourg and Oxfordshire.
Dear Daughter
Dear Daughter came to be written as a commission for an old lady whose mother had written an extensive memoir about her own early life in Manchester in the early years of Twentieth Century, with instructions for the document not to be read until after her death. This time capsule revealed a difficult childhood during a dramatic time in British history which was crying out to be dramatized.
In 2019, I was invited by Dave Samuels, Assistant Director of the Helen O’Grady Theatre School in Malta, to write a comedy play based on Greek mythology and the result has been ‘What goes on in the Pantheon’ which is planned to be performed at the Helen O’Grady School as well as going to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2021.
