Keith Dewhurst has been a yarn tester in a cotton mill, a reporter for the Manchester Evening Chronicle, and a columnist for the Guardian. Six of his seventeen stage plays have been premiered at the National Theatre and he is the author of more than twenty television plays, two novels, two movies and two memoirs.
He first saw Manchester United play in 1946, and spent a large part of his career as a journalist covering the team. His passion for the drama that plays itself out on the pitch is equalled only by the passion he has for great drama on stage or screen. It is a passion that has shaped his life.
He lives in London with his wife and cocker spaniel.
