Stephen Jumping Jackson’s poptrashtic musical Roller Diner won the Verity Bargate Award and is due to hit the London stage at Soho Theatre in 2017.
His work has also been shortlisted for the International Playwriting Festival, the Keats-Shelley Prize for Poetry, and The Raw Edge Monologue competition. This proves that he can rattle on a bit – and do it in rhyme if you are not careful.
