Nigel who?

Nigel Holloway has been involved in theatre for as long as he can remember.  Over the years, he has performed in just about all of Gilbert and Sullivan's works, and has directed, produced and musically directed many others.  He claims that his theatrical career started with Orsino in Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, and has gone down hill ever since.  His lowest point was a modern dress production of Die Fledermaus, where he played Eisenstein as a Hollywood film producer.  He has now stopped listing his principal roles in show programmes due to lack of available space!  

To reflect his ego, all his latest performances have been confined to playing gods and noblemen - Jupiter in Orpheus in the Underworld, Lord Mountararat in an open air production of Iolanthe, and several roles (including Prince Cherny) in the outrageous comedy muiscal, LittleMe!

He has written four novels, several plays for television and radio, and many fictional serials for magazines.  He has also written a series of stage plays for performance by amateur musical societies.  To find out more about these hilarious comedies, visit

Several of them, including Ripping Off Angels,  Big Idea  and Prima Donna have been adapted as podcasts, which can be downloaded from the off-the-wall-plays website.  There are also links via the Concept Players website. 

Nigel originally wrote his adaptation of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol for the award-winning Concept Players, an amateur group based in South East Wales, with a fine reputation for musical excellence and imaginative and creative staging.  The actual writing of the adaptation took three years from its inception to the UK premier.  In 2006, it was accepted for publication by Lazy Bee Scripts, following their acceptance of Big Idea for publication, and has been performed several times since.

Nigel has just finished the latest in the Off-The-Wall series of plays, called Blackmailing Butterflies, as well as a stage play, entitled Travesti, about the life of Charlotte Charke, the notorious eighteenth century actress (published by Jasper Publications).  

His first novel, a historical fiction entitled The damning of Henry Morgan, is available from Amazon Kindle .  For more information about the book, click here.  

The second novel, also a historical fiction, called Scartato,  is also available from Amazon Kindle, and for more details, click here.

Nigel's third novel, Second Death, a sort of science fiction, has also been published on Amazon Kindle.  

He has recently published his fourth novel, a darkly humorous political satire entitled Bard Boy, as well as writing a second adaptation of the Beggar's Opera - this time a rock opera version, called the Beggar's Rock Opera! - in collaboration with a group of fellow musicians, who perform under the name, Perfect Recall.

He is currently working on the sequel to his novel, 'Second Death'.
