TELEVISION, STAGE & SCREEN

Currently in commissioned development with feature films BREAKAWAY for Andrew Eaton and JANIS & JAKE for Young Films. Recent commisions included 7/7 for Hat Trick/C4 and feature film, LOCKERBIE, for Kevin Macdonald to direct via Young Films.  Television credits include episodes of HOLBY CITY and DOCTORS. Phil’s play DEEP CUT, commissioned by Sherman Theatre, was a hit at Edinburgh in 2008 and received four star reviews across the board winning a Fringe First and a Herald Angel. Mark Lawson said “Never before have I been so moved, or enraged, by a play…”; the play was credited as having played an influential part in securing the recent re-opening of the inquest into the death of Private Cheryl James at the Deep Cut barracks in Surrey.  The play was picked up and developed as a feature script by Revolution Films. In 2005 Phil starred in a one-man show HITTING FUNNY (produced by Volcano Theatre), which he also wrote, which toured the UK and played for 3 weeks at the Assembly Rooms at the Edinburgh Fringe. He was a writer on attachment at Soho Theatre in 2002 and his first play MR NOBODY premiered there in June 2003. Phil graduated as an actor from RADA in 1992.
