Richard Quick trained for the theatre at Drama Centre, London. His writing includes verse and parody for BBC Radio 4’s satirical Week Ending
and a twenty year run as lyricist on Radio 2’s award-winning series The News Huddlines, working with many leading actors and comedians of the last decades. His BBC Radio 4 adaptations include The Larger Lunacy of Stephen Leacock, Educated Evans (Edgar Wallace) and his own book Simon’s Bug. Research in the 1970s brought him to Peter Green’s translation of Juvenal’s Satires and what’s now become a lifetime’s passion for both writers.
