What makes us a good team?

In 1997 we moved from the UK Midlands to Ireland and retain a shared connection to our roots and the sharp tongues we grew up around. After thirty years of friendship, we formally began writing collaboratively as ‘Whitby and Whyte’. Determined and hard working, we write surreal stories with darkly comic undertones and authentic, multi-layered characters. We have an appetite for telling original and funny stories – that bite!

Our first screenplay ‘Living with Abaddon’ was shortlisted for interview by the BBC Writersroom Open Call 2021. We joined the BBC Writersroom Belfast Voices programme 2022, where we developed ‘Last of Their Kind’, as well as an anthology series ‘Dog Walkers’ – both with a dark comedy slant.
