Broadhead, Nick

Nick Broadhead

Nick BroadheadNick was born and then grew up at the western edge of the Peak District, and, after having lived in London, the Midlands and Wales (as well as on a croft in the Outer Hebrides) has been happily settled in Liverpool for the past 30 years with his long-suffering partner, Sheila. He has his own bicycle, many of his own teeth and almost none of his own hair.

“Write about what you know” is the advice given to aspiring writers - judged on that basis, you’d surmise that he has a depth of knowledge about duplicity, assassins, blackmail, backstage shenanigans, bickering couples, inept figures of authority, unfaithful spouses and unrequited love - all of his plays seem to involve some of the above!

The reality is that Nick has to research much of what he writes because the only thing he really knows about life is that it is absurd. His response to this absurdity is to write dark comedies, where intricate plots are usually resolved after a series of unexpected twists and turns.

He trained and worked as an Occupational Therapist, specialising in mental health, but alongside his professional career, his creativity found its way out in folk clubs and stand-up comedy in the 80’s and 90’s, to acting, and then to writing plays.

He finds it immensely satisfying to start off with a blank page and an idea, then develop it into a completed script that actors present - leading to the best sound in the world - an audience’s laughter. Nick says: “I really don’t know where the ideas come from, but I’m grateful that they do, and long may it continue”.
