John Marshall


John Marshall grew up in a modest and honest family. In his late teens he decided to understand the seedier side of life so he became a lawyer. Having practised law for many years, but before his last ethical principle could be destroyed, he undertook study in comparative religion in order to find God. Unfortunately God did not appear. Taking on the mantle of God, John took up a teaching position. Not satisfied with this degree of masochism he also began training for marathon running. He succeeded in this pursuit by doing irreparable damage to his knees. One final human endeavour had to be challenged. John began writing plays and is now successfully falling into a complete state of insanity. Thus far two one-act plays, RESTORATIONS and REVELATIONS, and a two-act play, HARD YAKKA, have been produced in Sydney fringe theatre. IS ANDREAS COMING?, a play about autism, has had a moved reading at the New Theatre in Sydney and was selected for inclusion in the Australian National Playwrights' conference in Canberra in 1998.
