Carrot Nappers began Keith Large’s journey into playwriting. Originally published in First Edition as a short story, the play
headlined the final night of 2009 Naked Stage season at The ADC Theatre in Cambridge in front of a sell out audience. This was followed by a trilogy of
short plays at the 2010 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, which included Jeff Stewart (Reg Hollis from ITV’s The Bill) appearing in Keith’s headline play ‘Prima Donna
Island’ and achieving further critical acclaim.
Prima Donna Island-
‘With Stewart on good form and showing no signs of his infamous police persona,
it’s an arresting performance’- Edinburgh Evening News 20th August 2010.
Keith has still found time to write short stories. His humorous fantasy ‘The Tisbech Terror’ won first prize in Freelance Market
News’s 2010 short story competition, along with a piece of reverse creativity, adapting his stage play ‘Whine Fever’ into a short story to win the 2011
PCS/Words national competition.
His advance into drama continues to go from strength to strength. The educational play ‘Racing Green’ is being performed by several schools across the UK and his
anthem radio play ‘Talkers and Doers’ features BAFTA award winning actor David ‘Dai’ Bradley (Billy Casper in Kes) in the lead role.
Keith is involved in this year's http://www.nationalshortstoryweek.org.uk/ taking place between 12th - 18th November 2012. Keith is behind arranging for radio
stations across the UK to broadcast short stories written by writers participating in National Short Story Week.
