Adam is an award-winning playwright from Leeds, West Yorkshire, currently based in London. Having written since graduating university three years ago, he has gone on to develop a number of pieces which have been staged all across the UK.
Last year Adam's London stage debut came with Marching On Together at the Old Red Lion Theatre. Focusing on the fall of football hooliganism set against the Yorkshire miners strike, the play sold out across its four week run and was a critical success, with Adam being called 'a playwright to watch' (British Theatre). Adam is a past winner of the Kenneth Branagh Drama Award for New Writing (2014) and the London Players Playwright Award (2015). He has had short pieces performed at The Bush Theatre, Theatre503, The Southwark Playhouse and Wakefield Theatre Royal.
Adam is a member of the Soho Theatre's Young Writers Group, where he is currently developing a full length play. He is also one of the emerging playwrights on Sheffield Crucible Theatre's FUSE programme and part of an invite-only Writers Group at The Arcola Theatre. He was also chosen to be part of the Stratford East Theatre Royal Writers Programme earlier this year, led by Rikki Beadle-Blair.
Adam was absolutely delighted to be one of the playwrights involved with Supernova 7, when this play was first performed. It was then taken to Totton for the Festival of Drama. We are thrilled to announce that it won several awards!
This play was staged at Totton Drama Festival, March 2017
