Matthew is an emerging writer born and raised in Wales, and based in Yorkshire. As a theatre writer branching out into broadcast media, he has been developed by Sherman Theatre, Leeds Playhouse and The Writing Squad, and is currently supported by BBC Writersroom on their Northern Voices programme.
His writing often manipulates histories and fuses media to create work which is fiercely theatrical. He is currently working on projects with Northern Broadsides and Rollem Productions' Young Writers' Think Tank, as well as developing various independent projects.
In 2018, Matthew was shortlisted the BBC Writersroom Drama Room Scheme and longlisted for Pint-Sized Plays' Octoberfest programme. In 2017 he was longlisted for HighTide's First Commissions scheme and in 2016 he was longlisted for the Papatango Prize. He has a degree in English from the University of York.
