Play premiere, Brighton Festival, May 1-5, 2015

FACETIME premier

My short comedy, FaceTime, premiered at Phoenix Artists' Club in February, 2019. One of four 'shorts', it was produced by Michelle Payne of Caspa Arts and directed by Lizzie Fitzpatrick from Soho Theatre.

Set in the near future, FaceTime is an embryonic love story between a guy with an embarrassing problem and a virtual doctor.

Starring Stephanie Stevens and Antonio Ayuso, it was the final play in Caspa Arts' Scratch Night show.

**** The Stage

***** Broadway Baby

Nominated, Best New Play in the Fringe Award

Nominated, Broadway Baby 'Bobby' Award for most outstanding show reviewed.

'David Fielder gives a stunning performance.This is an intelligent, moving, perfectly constructed play that is performed beautifully. Go and see it. It’s just a shame it doesn’t have a longer run.' Broadway Baby


'This play says big things in small ways. As Kinsley haltingly tells of finding and losing love as a young captain with a nurse called Elizabeth, digressions and telling details form a close-up portrait of a man thrown by war into an achingly unfulfilled future. 

A gentle, beautifully intimate portrait of loss and regret.' Tom Wicker, The Stage
