Martin Cort's writing work began with the narratives that he wrote for Rumer Godden's Poetry Programmes (see The Around Readers page for further information).   He went on to write three pantomimes (which he also directed) for the London Borough of Camden: Cinderella, Puss in Boots and Dick Whittington.

Attending a modern-times adaptation of Marivaux's Love Is a Game of Chance, he was inspired to make his own adaptation set in the 1920s.  His adaptation was premiered at Actors & Writers London in 2002.
