Ken Duncum


Ken Duncum, who heads the scriptwriting programme at Victoria University, has written comedy (Skitz, Willy Nilly), detective shows (Duggan) and meta dramas about television itself (Cover Story). His extensive theatrical CV is laced with plays in which music plays a major part — including the acclaimed Waterloo Sunset, and hit show Blue Sky Boys.

A [2003] 'Top 30' list of New Zealand plays (as voted by theatre professionals) featured three of Ken´s plays (Blue Sky Boys, Flipside and Horseplay), the highest tally of any playwright. Playmarket website
