An experienced writer and manager is joining Make it Write Productions to help the business grow, handle major projects and fundraising.

David Sindall, already a novelist and playwright, has spent much of his career working to improve accessibility for old and disabled people, including 10 years working as Head of Disability & Inclusion for the Disability Rights Commission.

Make it Write’s remit is to stage new plays and run various theatre workshops.

Executive Director Sharon Colpman said: “It's really exciting to have David on board. He brings skills and insight that we need in Make it Write and he will help us positively develop our work in the future.”

Sindall, who has recently returned to the Wirral and is living in West Kirby, was born in Birkenhead and is a fanatical Tranmere Rovers supporter.

He said: “I have been impressed by Make it Write’s commitment to developing new stage productions and am really keen to support their work. I am hoping I can make a positive contribution to the further development of Make it Write."

His first novel 'After Alyson' was published in 2012 and this was followed by 'Snatched' in 2015.

Prior to this, his play 'Three Turds' was performed at the Edinburgh Festival in 1996, 'Mickey Mouse Returns Your Call' was entered for the Verity Bargate Awards in 1998. He has written various other sketches and pieces for different media.

“I have always loved writing dialogue. People who read my novels have commented that the dialogue is very strong, so I am returning to writing plays alongside supporting Make it Write. Hopefully some of my new work will get performed and I can help other playwriters develop their skills”, he added.

David has fitted his writing around a career which also includes working on accessibility for the BBC.

Until recently he ran his own consultancy, Aldridge Prenton, but is now concentrating on writing. He has recently finished his third novel 'First Divi' a Football Pools heist set in 1960s’ Merseyside.
