As well as writing and performing, he is a director who has worked at the Melbourne Theatre Company and in commercial theatre. Part of the inspiration for the new work comes from Michael Frayn's classic Noises Off , which he directed for Marriner theatres in He also worked early in his career on the prewar farce Rookery Nook , by Ben Travers, which is still produced. So he has worked a mid-life crisis into his script, which he admits is largely based on his own experiences — he has turned He has connected the play's theatrical concerns to his own hazy memories.
There are stories about all that, but I don't really remember the details. In much the same way, he says, few people remember details of a fantastic time in the theatre, while a bad night out will provide plenty of gory details.
I hope part of the cleverness is a conversation about what theatre does. He has also "snuck in" some philosophy about life.

Essays on life that will resonate deeply as readers discover how universal insights can be Essays on life that will resonate deeply as readers discover how universal insights can be found in ordinary events. More than thirty years ago, Robert Fulghum published a simple credo—a credo that became the phenomenal 1 New York Times bestseller All View Product. All Our Yesterdays. A cohort of new younger Tory MPs has offset the fuddy duddiness of yesteryear. They don't quite seem to know what they stand for, but they are trying to pose the right questions.
How can Tory laissez-faire economics embrace social justice? How should Conservatives recapture a belief in localism? Is there a new Conservative approach to the environment?
Should Tory atlanticism be revisited? Should traditional Conservative support for free trade be tempered by concerns about third world poverty? Many of the early, tentative attempts at answers seem implausible. A number of new Tory MPs published a breezy manifesto for radical political devolution in England a couple of months ago, yet it is difficult to see how a party that did so much to castrate local autonomy in the 80s and 90s is now going to emerge as the authentic champion of localism.
George Osborne, we are told, is titillated by the idea of introducing a single flat tax, yet it is not obvious how this will sit alongside the emerging emphasis on compassionate Conservatism, at least as long as the regressive effects of a single flat tax go unaddressed. David Willets's articulate exploration of the nature of social deprivation, of the repetitive nature of inequality across the generations, is refreshing coming from a Tory but somehow I don't think the Tories will ever eclipse either Labour or the Lib Dems as a party of social reform and justice.
But at least there is a marketplace of ideas, invigorated by the clash between would-be leaders. A party that is open to new thoughts is more likely to have a future than a party which has become stale and dogmatic. Blair has monopolised British politics for so long. The burning question now is which opposition party can articulate a credible, electorally popular alternative as his reign draws to a close. Inescapably, that alternative will be a liberal one.
