Deborah has been writing with Roy Butlin on and off since 2007. They have recently completed Once We Were Mermaids, which is currently being read by various production companies and theatres.



Barons Court Theatre, 2010

Stage Play. A one woman show produced by Professional Help Productions.


"...a new play dealing with the powers of the media, subjectivity, truth and delusions, and mental health. [Deborah Wastell] carries the hour long show well, bringing an undercurrent of hysteria to this ordinary woman in extraordinary circumstances..."

Lindsey Clarke -


" of the cleverest scripts and most unforgettable characters we have seen this year..."

Ron Phillips - Artistic Director, Barons Court Theatre




Camden Fringe '07/'08, Canal Café Theatre '07/'08

A series of comedy shows devised by members of the cast (including Deborah Wastell) and co-written by Roy Butlin. It played to sell-out audiences on the London Fringe.


"...clearly developed characters, all of whom are engaging and entertaining... a power-house show. Their sharp, witty lines and ability to think on their feet provide the audience with an engaging hour of comedy... A laugh a minute and well worth seeing."

Skye Crawford for Fringe Review


"...Professional Help have certainly hit upon a smashing idea... surreal hilarity... a magical land where prostitution, nuns and Star Wars are bright and breezy comedy fun... originality is guaranteed..."
