Hi. These are some links to some cool things I listen to while writing and some cool people I know. Please check them out and share, like etc.


My Brother, My Brother and Me. These guys do amazingly funny podcasts that I listen to. You can check them out on Twitter: @mbmbam , on their website: , or on their Facebook page:

These guys and gals are Yellow Spot Collective. They can explain what they are much better than I can. Please check them out on Facebook:!about/c139r or on their website:

The Old Border are a great bunch of lads who have formed their own band and play great music. They also filmed a music video in my flat (how cool is that?). You can check them out on Facebook:

Ryan Koriya is too many things to list fully, but in brief he is a musician, singer songwriter, all round awesome fella and occasional sleeper on my sofa. He has a lot of links and you can find them on Facebook:

Vanity Productions  is run by Tim Oberholzer and is the company that produced a play I wrote for the 2014 Ottawa Fringe Festival called The Poe Show. You can find information on Vanity Productions and their great upcoming shows on Facebook:

You can also find about Tim Oberholzer and The Poe Show on Tim’s website:

I have known Stewart Matthews since we started university in 1995. We formed a theatre company called Screwed & Clued with two other friends in 1998. Stewart directed The Poe Show and (and many other shows including Hedwig and the Angry Inch for Vanity Productions) has generally been kicking ass in Canadian theatre for years. He also who helped me drag myself away from a dead end care job and back to writing for which I am eternally grateful. 

There will be more links coming soon.

Take care buddies,





About davidmbeecroft

Hello and welcome to my blog. Please feel free to have an explore. My name is David Beecroft. I am 38 years old. I co-founded and ran a small scale touring theatre company called Screwed & Clued in 1998. I went on to tour the Canadian Fringe Theatre Festival circuit over the following five years. I have written six original plays, the last ‘The Poe Show’ won a Best in Fest award at the 2014 Ottawa Fringe Festival. I worked in a social care setting for ten years and now work in a special needs school. I have sent my first novel off to agents and considering self-publishing if that does not work. I co-host a radio show on Surrey Hills Community Radio called Daves of the Week where we feature charities for a six week period. I live with my fiance and two pet Degus. I started this blog when suffering from depression and attending therapy, so a large part of this blog was about my experience and thoughts of that. Since then I am in a much better place and I write about life after depression and how I stay (or try to) ahead of it happening again. I also like to look at the happier sides of life and try to put a positive spin on serious subjects.
