Justin read Classics Greats at Oxford, and trained subsequently at Drama Studio London, graduating with honours in 1992, since when he has worked all over the world as a director, writer, actor and musician in a vast range of roles and productions in theatre, television, radio and film.
His epic play Scaramouche Jones, starring the Oscar-nominated, BAFTA-award winning actor Pete Postlethwaite, has been touring the globe since its launch at the Dublin Theatre Festival in 2001, has won and been nominated for several awards, and been translated and produced in five other languages. In 2003 Justin wrote and directed the smash-hit satirical comedy The Madness Of George Dubya in response to the Iraq War. Hailed by The Guardian newspaper as the catalyst for the re-politicisation of British theatre, the show received unprecedented global media coverage, played to packed houses for five months in London’s West End, and along with its sequel A Weapons Inspector Calls, earned Justin the Fringe Report Best Political Dramatist Award 2003. The third in the trilogy, Guantanamo Baywatch, was produced in the West End in the run-up to the November ’04 US Presidential election.
