Barnaby Chiverton studied Architecture at Glasgow School of Art in Scotland before moving to Australia in 1999. His connection with theatre started in Melbourne with some acting and later some theatre production. He started writing for theatre in 2009. His interest in theatre continues to be fuelled by contemporary writing - particularly short stories and poetry, by seeing plays that touch the boundaries of the form and by scientific ideas that affect our perception of who we are. Black comedy, relationships, science and sex predominate his work.

Distant bodies is a black comedy. It is a play about relationships that follows five characters that all want to connect. Ed and Abi remember school, a couple of years ago now. They look out to the stars and dream about the future. They feel right, 'meant to happen', the sex& Well, it should get better. Dianne and Joseph remember coming out here ten years ago, before they were married, when small purple clouds dotted a huge empty sky. But now it's getting dark and the walls are closing in and they are trying to find each other again. Fingers crossed the role play will work. Alan's wife has left him, it's not the first time this has happened. The first time was bad; he lost his daughter then and hasn't seen her since. Now he's come out to the desert to die, its fair, but the laxatives won't do it. These five people's lives are intertwined as they connect and disconnect with each other and world they live in and their meeting in the desert changes them forever.
