Norman Robbins is considered one of amateur theatre’s most popular authors. He was an avid theatre-goer from the age of three.

His grand-parents ran a public house near the local theatre in his West Yorkshire home place and a supply of free tickets was readily available.

He began directing plays at the age of 18. In his mid 20s he went to drama school and within his first term made his professional acting debut. He was still writing up to his early 80s and up to a few days before his death in April 2016.
