This is actor Andrew Cullum’s personal view of some of the peripheral characters in a familiar story. It is not the Gospel according to any of the better known writers, but the Gospel… According to Others.

Some recent audience comments:

  • Utterly captivating and beautifully written. So many imaginative little ideas bringing new angles to familiar characters.

A novel by Andrew Cullum

Brooke McCarthy left drama school over a year ago. After months of waiting for her big break she gets a job with the Edwardian Palace Theatre on the south coast. It's not everything she hoped for, and the play's director, the notorious Jimmy Knowles, is difficult to work for and a hard man to please.
On her first day, Brooke meets an endearing old man who lives in the cottage just across the path from the rehearsal hall.  A man who loves the theatre and has an interesting past. The week before Brooke arrives at her new job, a young girl has been found murdered in the woods...
Lights Burning Blue is a story of an unlikely friendship, and is a page-turning thriller set in the world of the theatre

When Did You Last See Your Father?  is inspired by the painting by William Frederick Yeames, and is a short story for children, written and performed by Andrew.
