About the Author

Richard Roques has written eight full length plays and a number of short stories and radio plays. As a guide he has a repertoire of over forty walks all over London. Of his first play, Looks Like Freedom, Bonnie Greer wrote in Time Out:

Richard & Faye'His insights ... are compassionate and often hilarious ... this play, with its honesty and willingness to engage the world, is worth all the well-crafted, directed to death but essentially tiny plays currently in fashion.'

Richard won the 2006 Windsor Fringe Festival award for his short play Don't Open the Door. The award was presented by Fay Weldon.
