He was playwright in residence at Hampstead Theatre in 1985 where his second play Particular Friendships won the Thames Television Award for best stage play of that year. His original screenplay Song of Experience, directed by Stephen Frears, was shown at the 1985 London Film Festival and transmitted on BBC2 the following year.
