Peter Briffa's first play, Night of the Fox was produced and directed by Sam Shammas in 1996 at the Lilian Baylis Theatre, Sadler’s Wells. It was over fourteen years before Siren came calling.
In the interim Peter worked as a script reader for BBC Films, and became one of the first political bloggers to be signed up by the national press, writing opinion columns for the Times as well as other leading national websites. He even spent four years commentating on the reality TV show Big Brother for the News of the World on-line.
In 2010 he set up the Chilling Out Theatre Company, and his one act play Siren was a sell out at the Etcetera Theatre (Camden, London) as part of the Camden Fringe Festival.
A year later Country Life was produced by Player-Playwrights at the GBS theatre, RADA, again as part of the Camden Fringe, and was one of only two full length plays to premier in the festival. It later transferred to the Old Red Lion in Islington (London) for a three week run and was described by What’s On Stage as “Quietly entertaining, brilliantly original”. It has since been recorded by the Wireless Theatre Company.
