About Robert

"What makes my plays special is that every one (apart from 'The Games) has songs written specifically for it."

Creating real drama for young people

Robert and wife

This is me, Robert Smith, and my wife, Geraldine. I was a primary school teacher for 10 years, and a Headteacher for 13 years. Geraldine was an Infant teacher and primary school Head and now works as a visiting lecturer at Brighton University.

I have had work published by the BBC and the educational periodical, Junior Education.

I have undertaken several commissions for new plays including two for Lottery Heritage funding schemes. At the moment (Autumn 2012) I am working on an assembly package for the festival of Purim. This at the same time as preparing for Christmas with choir rehearsals.

I also have resources for teachers for assemblies. Contact me if you have specific ideas or requirements and I will try to help.
