Colin Hume


Colin Hume was born in South London and was keen on writing from an 
early age.  In his twenties and thirties he wrote short stories (two 
published in national science fiction magazines), songs (two of which 
he sang on national radio and two at the Royal Albert Hall) and a 
musical about Moses which was performed by Tulse Hill School in South 
London.  For no good reason, the fiction writing got forgotten until 
2009 when he went on a "Writing for Performance" course in Letchworth 
(where he now lives) run by Teresa Benison from Cambridge.  One of the 
guest tutors was Michelle Golder who told him about WRiTEON! and he 
soon became a member.  He is a regular attendee at the Script Feedback 
Group which meets once a month and gives lots of useful feedback.  He 
has had several short plays staged by WRiTEON! and taken many along to 
the Script Evaluation Group.  He also acted and played guitar in 
"Angles" at the Corpus Playroom in 2012 and acted in "A Twist of 
Lemon" at the Corpus Playroom in 2013 and has acted in WRiTEOn's 
performances in the ADC Theatre bar.  His full-length musical "One 
Girl, One Dream!" was performed by a Letchworth-based group in 2014 
and a one-act musical "Rumpelstiltskin" will be performed by a school 
in Stoke-on-Trent in 2015.

In 2011 his play "Quest of the Four Princesses" won the International 
Playwriting Competition run by Trinity College, London in the 
"Performers aged 11 years and under" category.  This resulted in a £1,000
prize and two performances at the Unicorn Theatre in London.
