Tim’s first play, ‘I’m an Asylum Seeker – Get Me Into Here’ was nominated for Best Overall Play at the Lost Theatre One Act Festival in 2004. It had a three week professional run, directed by Liz Bagley, at the Rosemary Branch Theatre, Islington the following year.
“I’M AN ASYLUM SEEKER…GET ME INTO HERE isn’t just another politically correct, right-on effort – it’s got sharpness, humour and pathos”.
“I’M AN ASYLUM SEEKER…GET ME INTO HERE is one of the most stimulating, thought provoking plays I’ve seen in ages. Not only does the writing address pertinent social issues surrounding the difficult subject of asylum seekers with a candour that both instructs and inspires, but it manages to do so without ever becoming mawkish or sentimental.”
“Do not miss”

Tim’s short film script Saving Ernie was shortlisted in the ‘Prequel to Cannes’ competition in 2009.
Tim has recently co-written another play called ‘Dermot’s Body and the Potential of Concrete’ and is working on a novel. He has trained in film script writing with Eon Productions (makers of the James Bond films) and in TV script writing with TAPS (a programme with sponsors including the BBC, ITV, Channel Four). As part of this programme, a showcase TV read-through was recorded and screened to industry professionals at the Channel Four studios in London.
