Robert Khan and Tom Salinsky are writers and playwrights who have written and produced several critically and audience acclaimed plays, a wide range of audio scripts for Big Finish productions and a number of treatments and other scripts for film, TV, podcasts and radio.
Robert and Tom have been writing together since university and they founded and ran the satirical online magazine (with Jason Smith) THE BRAINS TRUST in the 2000s, which the Guardian dubbed “the British Son of the Onion”. They are now firmly established as playwrights, having written numerous plays which have been presented at the Edinburgh Fringe and transferred to a variety of UK theatres. They are also regularly commissioned by Big Finish Productions and have written several audio-plays over a range of different franchises, including Doctor Who and The Avengers.
Robert and Tom’s other forthcoming projects include working with John Crace (The Guardian) in bringing Maybot: The Musical to the London stage, as well as writing a new play about the Labour party, telling the complex story of three warring political giants: Denis Healey, Roy Jenkins and Tony Crosland, and working on a new expanded version of their play IMPOSSIBLE, about Harry Houdini and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
