Welcome to my website. I hope you’ll find all sorts of things to amuse you with links to some of my poems (“Poem of the Week”) and projects as well as my history and publications (“About”)and, if you are a booker, information under the heading “Press” that you can use directly for publicity. Any events that I’m taking part in or rehearsals or shows with dates and so on in the “Events” section but if there’s anything you would like to know then just go to “Contact”. Check out videos of projects on YouTube, Vimeo . You can find various bits and pieces on Facebook - Peter John Cooper Playwright - and Twitter .

You’ll be glad to know that we are all well and have survived up to now. I hope the last few months haven’t been too trying for you. Oddly enough, for all that time in lockdown I haven’t done any updates for this site. I’ve been making some little You Tube videos which you can see here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL3ivXR28aXGEQ4Pt7Ivxmr7AEQvI7JkOO
I’ll update you with some more of my other work as soon as I can. It also looks as though the site could do with a bit of a spring clean. I want to post some of the juicy bits from my musings on writing stories in My Story Story. I hope the rest of 2020 will give me time to get nearer to finishing Life and Death and Everything in Between which has been languishing on my hard drive for a couple of years now. Drop me an email if you’d like me to include any particular work.
A great night sharing Poetry with other talented performers. Thanks to Nawar Saadi for organising such an interesting even and Wheelz Wheeler for photographs.
