Nigel Holloway

Originally, Nigel concentrated mainly on writing for the stage, and to date, thirteeen of his plays have been published, with performances taking place as far afield as Australia - and Hull.  A number of his shorter plays have also been recorded as podcasts, and are available to download.

Nigel has also written two musical adaptations, based on the music of Sir Arthur Sullivan:  

A Savoy Christmas Carol, based on Dickens' timeless classic (for more details go to, 

and The Savoy Beggar's Opera, based on the original musical play by John Gay (more information at the Savoy Beggar's opera website).

He remains fascinated by finding intriguing 'holes in history' - questions about particular people and events which are not answered by the existing historical record.  Much of his work seeks to fill these 'holes' with explanations which fit (most of the time) with the known facts of the events in question

Nigel's first historical fiction novel, The Damning of Henry Morgan, is available from Amazon Kindle, by clicking here.  For more information about the book, go to the website.

His second novel, also based on the lives of real characters, entitled Scartato, is available from Amazon Kindle.

His fourth novel, Bard Boy, a political satire and black comedy, is also available from Amazon Kindle.

He is currently working on a second musical adaptation of The Beggar's Opera - this time a rock opera version, called the Beggar's Rock Opera! - in collaboration with his fellow musicians who perform under the name Perfect Recall.

As well as this, he has recently completed Hamish Redux, the sequel to 'Second Death' which deals with the enormous consequences of Hamish McAllister's breakthrough - what happens when just about anyone can choose to abandon the real world and live forever in another of their choosing?
