Widely lauded as one of England's most daring and innovative playwrights, Peter has written over twenty-five plays produced at Shakespeare’s Globe, the Royal National Theatre, the Apollo Theatre, the Lyric Studio Theatre, the Gate Theatre, the Finborough Theatre and numerous other venues. He was writer-in-residence at the Globe from 1998-2005; and his version of Schiller’s Mary Stuart, directed by Phyllida Lloyd, went from the Donmar Warehouse to the West End and Broadway. Peter specialises in plays written in verse form, welding his deep knowledge of classical literature and dramaturgy to a sharply modern sensibility. His plays and books of poetry have been published by Oxford University Press, Oberon Books, and New Generation Publishing.
