Writer

In 2011 Thomas won the Verity Bargate Award with his critically acclaimed play Pastoral. From there he went on to become Soho’s Pearson Playwright in Residence in 2012, through which he wrote A Movement which won the Catherine Johnson Award in 2013.  Currently he has two original sitcoms, END TO END and BE THE YES, in development with Objective Fiction, and a drama series SCHTUM (with Tom Joseph) commissioned by Channel 4. Last year his award-winning play Heather toured the UK before a sell out run at the Bush Theatre. This year his play Instructions For Correct Assembly opens downstairs at the Royal Court. He is founder and co-artistic director of visual theatre company Dancing Brick with whom he has toured nationally and internationally.
