Today's Bookmarks guest is an English born naturalised New Zealander who trained as a teacher before becoming one of our best known comedy playwrights. His break-through work depicted life in the public service and went on to become a hit TV series.  In the 1980s his comedy Middle Age Spread entered a 15 month run on London's West End and was awarded West End Comedy of The Year.  It was later made into a full length feature film.This afternoon he talks to Jesse about his favourite books, TV shows and plays, and about his panto Jack And The Beanstalk.
