Mikey Major

Mikey Major is a twenty-something student from Plymouth, who currently studies at the English Literature with Writing at UWE. He is a writer who predominately creates satirical plays, focusing on topics such as politics, social media and the ‘modern man’.

Mikey’s main goal in life is to have a play produced and performed on a prestigious stage, such as the Old Vic. Another dream of his is to have his own radio show, writing and performing sketches, as well as having informal discussions about music and literature.
