Andrew Payne studied fine art, photography and printmaking at Hornsey College of Art in London, but soon gave up art to devote himself to writing. He has written numerous screenplays for both film and television, including the hugely popular BBC series Pie in the Sky, for which he is also the lead writer. For the theatre, he has written several plays, including Then What (Synopsis), Squash, The Plan (Plan B) and The Meeting. All have been successfully staged in France in private and subsidised theatre.


Then What : Alan and Brian are screenwriters who have been turning out episodes of mediocre TV shows for years. The former is diligent, punctual and serious while the latter is flamboyant, boastful and jealous. When Brian discovers that Alan has written a screenplay for the cinema, and that John Malkovich has agreed to play the lead role, a confrontation is inevitable.


Squash : Greg and Ryan have known each other for a long time. They meet every Wednesday to play squash. One night, Ryan needs an alibi because he has an assignation with Leslie, a beautiful and sexually adventurous woman he can't resist.  Greg is gradually drawn into Ryan’s tangled web of lies, creating a crisis that threatens both of them.
