In October 2013 a few scenes from a play I had written were performed as part of the Ankur Ha Ha Scratch night at the Tron Theatre, Glasgow. The Ankur experience pointed out details I would never have noticed alone, the support and expertise I encountered was really helpful in the on-going development of my skills as a writer.
