About the Author
Paul Davies is an award winning screenwriter, script editor and playwright who has written over a hundred episodes of TV series from Homicide to Something in the Air. He also helped spark the site-specific theatre revolution in Melbourne in the 1980s with TheatreWorks' production of his first play Storming Mont Albert By Tram (1982) on board a 'really moving' Melbourne tram. What became known as "The Tram Show" played over a dozen years to packed trams in Melbourne and Adelaide, generating around a million dollars at the box office (on today's figures) and trambulating a total distance that would have taken the production and its nightly audiences halfway around the world. The Tram Show's success lead to an outbreak of 'location theatre' in Melbourne throughout the 1980s including three other site specific plays by Paul: Breaking Up In Balwyn (1983, on a riverboat), Living Rooms (1986, in an historic mansion) and Full House/No Vacancies (1989, in a boarding house). Paul has also co-written five feature films Neil Lynn (with David Baker in 1984), and Traps (1985), All That is Solid (1988) and One Way Street (1990) - all with John Hughes. He also wrote and directed the short feature Exits (with Pat Laughren and Caz Howard in 1980). He has taught screenwriting at a number of universities and published numerous articles, reviews, stories and interviews in magazines such as Metro, Cinema Papers, Cantrill's Filmnotes, Australasian Drama Studies, Community Theatre In Australia, The Macquarie Companion to the Australian Media and Theatre Research International (Cambridge University).
