(1965-    ) UK academic and playwright, whose works have been staged since the late 1990s. Of sf interest is The Contingency Plan: On the Beach & Resilience (coll of linked plays 2009); both plays, which were first performed in 2009 in London, are set in a Near Future Britain suffering the consequences of Climate Change, with an emphasis on inundation – Bristol is already underwater. In the first play, a glaciologist returns to Britain to engage in the human fight-back; in the second, a new Tory government cannot cope with the flooding of London. [JC]
