Composers and their stage works 

Ian Hornby

About the Author

Ian Hornby writes: "I started writing plays in my early 40s and still love to write them today, in between trying to write more novels and TV/radio scripts and being a drama adjudicator for The Greater Manchester Drama Federation. Oh, and I'm 2010 chairman of The Bridgewater Players Dramatic Society. And I run The Playwrights' Co-operative. Most recently I'm involved with Dying 4 Dinner - I write, along with my lovely wife Alison, murder mystery scripts, which we act out with a group of close friends at various venues, usually around the North West of England - call us for a quote! They're fascinating and lively fun, and are a good way of raising funds for the drama group, doing what we all love to do - act!

When people were foolish enough to actually employ me and pay me a salary, I used to design computers for a living: high-tech electronics and a job I loved. When my favourite employers, Ferranti Computer Systems, went bust, I moved to Unilever Research for 6 years and then to a couple of small electronics companies before going freelance, training people to use computers, interleaving my love of writing."
