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 May Irwin, a vaudeville star who was the first to integrate all-white U.S. stages. Then came a one act play then 1 hour TV/MOW "Queen 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 made PAGE semi-finals and finals NSI Features First (Canada). After drafting a novel about Joseph of Arimathea's journey to Britannia with the Holy Family, called "Voyage of the Holy Grail" and then finished a TV pilot and bible for an ensemble, comedy limited series called "Rare Vintages" set in an long-term care home. Using the same long term care home characters, I just finished a feature holiday drama called "Grace 'Til Christmas."
