Ray Cooney

Ray Cooney is today recognised theatrically and publicly as ‘The Master Of Farce’ and a most worthy successor as an author to the great Ben Travers, and as a director/actor to Brian Rix. He is a prolific writer of stage farces/comedies of high standards which have not only graced the stages of English speaking countries for more than 40 years but have been staged worldwide and translated into more than 40 foreign languages including Chinese, Japanese and Russian. Television broadcasts in English and foreign languages have also been widespread. Thus has Ray Cooney earned an international reputation as the finest living writer of this form of theatre, and professional and amateur artists have benefited from his writing genius and influence as well as an actor/director.
