Richardson, Alan

Alan Richardson

Derek Webb

Alan was born and still lives in Edinburgh, Scotland, with his wife, Karen. His interest in amateur theatre started back in 1969, when he was a mere youth of 20 years. (A quick bit of arithmetic will reveal his true age!) After serving his theatrical apprenticeship with local group Edinburgh People's Theatre, he moved on to become a founder member of Edinburgh Youth Theatre and worked with a number of other groups. Since 1978, he has mostly worked with the Mercators, one of Edinburgh's oldest  drama groups. During his forty-plus years in amateur theatre, he has acted in over eighty plays and directed over forty. He’s been a film extra and has appeared four times in the world famous Edinburgh Military Tattoo. 

Since his first play surfaced in 1973, he has won eight playwriting competitions including the Geoffrey Whitworth Trophy for the best original play entered in the British One Act Festival. His one act plays have won numerous trophies at Drama Festivals including many best actor/actress awards. Several plays have been translated and one has been adapted into an Opera.

Total performances number over 1020, mainly in the UK, including twelve Edinburgh Festival Fringe Productions, but also in Ireland, Holland, France, Germany, Spain, Malta, Cyprus, Gibraltar, Canada, USA, India, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.

Alan has also collaborated with another writer and close friend, Alistair Ferguson, on many Pantomime scripts.
