Culshaw & Paul

Emma Culshaw and David Paul have been writing plays and TV scripts together for the past ten years. They are based in the North West of England.


David’s background is in education, and he is based in Crosby, Liverpool.

He co-wrote the following plays with Emma Culshaw: Ruby Slippers, Blood Runs Deep, and Achy Breaky Bride.

He is currently working on television and film scripts. David enjoys exploring how characters respond to dramatic changes in their own lives that were not of their own making. We all face change and unless we evolve, we go under.


Emma trained at The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA). She is an actress, singer, director, teacher, and writer. She has worked in all mediums of the Performance Industry; theatre, T.V., film, radio, and documentary.


Emma has been writing with David Paul for the past ten years. They have written three plays which have been staged in and around the North West. ‘The Ruby Slippers’ went to the Arts Theatre in London’s West End.


Emma also runs her own Theatre School in Liverpool, where she teaches performing arts. She has written numerous plays for the young people there.


‘Only remembered for what they have done’ was a WW1 commemoration piece, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Trust, and ‘Baggage’ was a teenage mental health film, funded by the Arts council 'Awards For All' funding.


Emma and David have also written several TV pilots and are currently working on two new TV projects.

Culshaw & Paul

"This is a modern thriller with a classical Film Noir feel. It goes very dark at times. It is both challenging and entertaining."


Number 9

"Great Humour. There is a strong, timely, moral message at the heart of The Ruby Slippers about acceptance and belonging that deserves our applause. Judy Garland would be proud."



Liverpool Echo

There isn't a dull moment in the whole show and although the songs are predictable the laughs flow continually, there couldn't be a better cast for this show and you would be 'Crazy' to miss out on it. I can't promise you a ‘Rose Garden’ but I can guarantee a hilariously funny, light hearted entertaining show.
