Steve Orme

Midlands Editor

Steve Orme was one of the first four contributors to the British Theatre Guide, posting his initial review in November 2002 – a touring production of Shakespeare’s The Tempest when it stopped off at the Theatre Royal, Nottingham. Steve had been a freelance journalist for a number of years, writing for radio and television as well as newspapers.

His life changed in 1988 when he met Sue. They were soon married and found they shared a passion for theatre.

Steve's research for a television documentary fuelled a fascination with the Bard. He scripted and produced The Shakespeare Enigma, about the Shakespeare authorship controversy, and also produced and directed a modern, condensed version of Macbeth which was taken up by an American educational distributor.

Steve now works part-time lecturing broadcast journalism students at Nottingham Trent University.

His first play, What’s Your Poison?, about the supposed serial killer Dr William Palmer, was produced by Derbyshire-based Rumpus Theatre Company and went on tour in autumn 2023.

Steve has also self-published two novels, Storm Deaths and Storm Bodies, which combine his two other interests: crime writing and basketball.
