Production list



What follows is, so far as I can make it, a complete history of every project in which I have ever been involved as performer, director and/or composer. As the list has grown, I’ve been tempted to prune it: by, for example, stripping out walk-on parts, "one night only" shows and the like. However, as this list is very often the only record I have of such appearances, I’ve decided, for my own interest if no one else’s, to keep it comprehensive.

The list is presented in reverse chronological order so that the latest projects appear at the top.
