About

Adam was born in London in 1980. He studied Writing for Performance (MA) at Goldsmiths. 

His first full length play STOVEPIPE transferred to London in collaboration with the National Theatre and the Bush.  

His second full length play is under development by the National Theatre. He is also currently under commission to the Donmar Warehouse. 

Shorter plays include MIDNIGHT YOUR TIME, a one-woman show for Diana Quick; THE FOUR STAGES OF CRUELTY, a co-written piece based on Hogarth's engravings; TAKING PART, a response to the Olympics at The Criterion Theatre.

His first script for film, BEST, won the 2013 Sundance London Short Film contest and was officially selected for Sundance Festival 2014 in Utah.

Adam is an Associate at Nuffield Theatre, Southampton and a Writer-in-Residence in the English Department at the University of Southampton. He also regularly works in Live Comedy and Fringe Theatre as a Director and Script Editor .
