About and News

My name is Hugh Dichmont and I am a playwright based in Nottingham, UK.

I have had short works performed across the UK, including at Theatre 503 (London), Curve (Leicester), Lakeside Arts Centre (Nottingham), Derby Guildhall Theatre, Lincoln Performing Arts Centre, and MAC (Birmingham). Recent rehearsed readings include a script-in-hand performance of my Brexit response play ‘UKexit’ at Nottingham Playhouse (as part of NEAT Festival 2016).

This blog is mostly now dead. Please feel free to browse through old posts, though.

I have a blog of travel writing. Have a look at that here: http://somewhereelsejournal.wordpress.com/

Alongside writing pieces for theatre and radio, I am currently developing a story for a computer game to be released for smart phones and mobile devices, with Nottingham-based independent software development house Spacehopper Studios.
