Richard
Marsh

Writer for theatre, television and radio.

Richard's new show Phoenix (written with Jessica Sharman) is on at the Pleasance Edinburgh this summer. For TV he has Five Skulls in development with Wall to Wall and Latecomers with Slam Films. Richard is currently writing a musical adaptation of classic British indie movie Son of Rambow (with Miranda Cooper of Girls Aloud fame) for Nuffield Southampton Theatre.

Richard's one-man play Skittles was commissioned by NBC Universal for Radio 4 as Love & Sweets, and won Best Scripted Comedy in the BBC Audio Drama Awards.

Dirty Great Love Story (co-written and co-performed with Katie Bonna) won a Fringe First (for outstanding new writing) at the Edinburgh Fringe before transferring to New York followed by the West End.

Edinburgh hit Wingman was picked up by Big Talk Productions for UK TV then developed by CBS Studios for US TV. It has yet to be on actual TV.

He wrote and performed the Radio 4 poetry comedy series Cardboard Heart, starring alongside Phil Daniels, Olivia Poulet, Jemima Rooper, Rebecca Scroggs, Russell Tovey and Sam Troughton.
