Matthew is an emerging writer for theatre, TV and radio born and raised in Wales, and based in Yorkshire. He has been developed by Sherman Theatre, Leeds Playhouse, BBC Writersroom and The Writing Squad.
His writing often manipulates histories and fuses media to create work which is fiercely theatrical. He has recently had a short piece broadcast as part of BBC Radio 3's The Verb and was a supported writer on The North Wall's Catalyst residency. He is currently developing a range of projects across theatre, television and radio, and is under commission to New Creatives, supported by Tyneside Cinema, BBC Arts and Arts Council England. In the past he has worked on projects for and with Northern Broadsides, Rollem Productions, Dirty Protest, Sherman Theatre and the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.
Matthew has been shortlisted the Wales Writer in Residence award (BBC Wales/National Theatre Wales) and the BBC Writersroom Drama Room Scheme. He has been longlisted for the Alfred Bradley Bursary Award (2019), Pint-Sized Plays’ Octoberfest programme (2018), HighTide's First Commissions scheme (2017) and the Papatango Prize (2016). He has a degree in English from the University of York.
