My name is Pierre, and was born in France, my father an Italian, born in Scotland, mother Greek. I was educated in England. I am an ex stage designer, New York fashion and food photographer, film maker, world traveller and now at seventy seven a writer for radio, stage and screen.
Having lived and worked in seven different countries I have known many people from many walks of life. And it is people I like to write about.
I also have my likes, dislikes, prejudices and most of all, I reject political correctness for it denies freedom of speech and no doubt, in the future, government’s will even find a way of controlling thought. After all the media have certainly made a good start.
Today we live in a world where extended families have been and are still being destroyed, one parent families are slowly becoming the norm, the very basic necessities of life such as heat, light and water are taxed for profit. Furthermore sex, sexual innuendo and lavatory humour are now permitted and presented as entertainment in literature, magazines and newspapers, radio, stage and screen.
And third, to my necessary need for food and money to survive, sex is mainly the subject in which I base all my scripts. I believe it is said that people born under the sign of Scorpio are highly oversexed and it is always advised that a writer should write what he knows, learned, has experienced and seen.
Therefore all my plays are based on people I’ve worked with, studied with, partied with, lived with and believe me I’ve met some real odd balls.
Therefore to entertain, there is always the need to dramatise which I sincerely hope you may find interesting and most of all theatrically worthy.
