Martha Image


Hey everyone.


Tony Wood here, the Combat Theatre veteran and author of A Cudahy Caroler Christmas and Holiday Hell, as well as numerous short films and one-act plays. I’m seeking to collaborate with a composer to try and turn my new, full length play into a musical.


Martha and the Dark is a new, two-act fantasy written for young audiences. Inspired by Roald Dahl, The Wizard of Oz and The Phantom Tollbooth, it’s the story of a heroic girl setting out into the world to find her lost brother.  Accompanied by a handful of odd and outlandish characters, Martha has to save her brother before he becomes prisoner of the evil Administrator, a vile woman whose goal is to cover the entire Universe in The Dark.


Although light-hearted, funny and fatastical, at the heart of Martha and the Dark is a tale of loss, depression and addiction. And how we all need to turn to those we love to guide us through.


If interested, a sysnopsis can be supplied as well as the finished play. We can collaborate face-to-face, through the internet, or a little of both.


And of course, with any personal project—no money. Although I do have a relationship and three plays published with, the online play publishing company.


I would certainly split any future rights and residuals with the composer.
