Plays

The Works of PETER GORDON

WHO IS PETER GORDON?

Peter was born in York, England. Now a full-time writer, his earlier career as a Chartered Civil Engineer took him as far afield as the Middle East and eventually led him to become Head of Civil Engineering at a UK university.

Peter, whose first play was published in 1990, is one of the UK’s most popular playwrights. His plays have enjoyed great success, appealing to audiences world-wide. To date, he has written eleven comedies, a psychological thriller and a one act comedy.

The ‘Inspector Pratt' trilogy - spoofs of the Agatha Christie genre of whodunnits - have been described as “deliciously wicked” and “hilarious and very clever”. Collectively, ‘MURDERED TO DEATH’, ‘SECONDARY CAUSE OF DEATH’ and ‘DEATH BY FATAL MURDER’ have had over one thousand professional and amateur tours/productions in the UK and overseas, including USA, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.

Of his modern comedies, it has been said that “Peter Gordon writes about life. Sometimes it is bizarre and funny, sometimes it is sad, but it is always entertaining”. Favourites include ‘THE REUNION’, ‘OUT OF FOCUS’ and ‘THIRD WEEK IN AUGUST,’ which has been performed at the world-famous Minack Theatre in Cornwall. His most recently published play, ‘PAR FOR THE COURSE’, looks set to continue his success.

In addition to writing, he has a keen interest in music. He considers himself to be a good drummer and a less-than-adequate guitarist. He is trying to keep his ukulele playing a secret from his friends!

New Release - PAR FOR THE COURSE

Captain’s Day at the Seven Lakes Gold Club gets off to a bad start when the men’s Captain is indisposed. Club secretary, Simon, relishes the change to take over but is soon thwarted by the arrival of Vice Captain, Nick, and his girlfriend, Tiffany. Lady Captain, Fran, and enthusiastic but hopeless Barry add to the confusion as a series of disasters mount. With the unexpected arrival of Simon’s wife, Laura, tensions build and things go from bad to worse. Set on the club house patio, the characters soon discover that personal relationships OFF the course are more dangerous than the hazards ON the course – love or loathe golf, it will never seem quite the same again!
