I have also written two musicals for adults to perform to children, the scripts of which can be supplied by my agent Caroline Sheldon.
I wrote the first one, King Grunt’s Cake, when I was in my twenties and living in Brighton. I got together a group of actors and we performed the musical in the Round House Downstairs in London and at the Gardner Centre in Brighton. Malcolm had two roles – King Grunt and a morris-dancing farmer, and I was Lola the kitchen cat. My sister Mary had a cameo role as a cockerel called Clarence.
A few years later I followed this up with another musical called Pirate on the Pier, which again we performed in Brighton and London.
Malcolm was Polperro the pirate and I was a crooked fortune-teller called Gypsy Nose.
