About York

B.A. and B.A.(hons) English and M.A. (International Affairs) Long career in solo tenor vocal music and onstage in theatre. (just ask me! lol!)

Unique traits: I Love researching and writing Victorian and Edwardian film scripts with theatre, art and early film elements. My first play then screenplay was "Cakewalk" about a vaudeville star who was the first to integrate all-white U.S. stages. Then came a one act play "Claire and Marie (Dressler)", set in the early talkies era. After another one-act WWII play "Churchill in Peril" , I wrote a feature script "I Love You, Oscar Wilde", which I'm marketing after a table-read by local stage actors. Am now completing a script for a 2 hour, TV pilot for a 6 part series on Joseph and the Holy Grail.
