Craig completed his Drama degree at Wits University in 1988. Since then he has worked as a writer and director in theatre, television and film. His theatre works include "Edmond", "The Chalky White Show", "The Great Gatsby", "Jump", "Pygmalion", "Macbeth", "Sweet Phoebe", "Talk Radio", "Gums & Noses" and "The King of Laughter". His TV credits include "Not Quite Friday Night", "Soul Buddyz", "Scoop Schoombie", "Gazlam" and "Sorted". In 2004 Craig wrote and directed his first feature film "Gums & Noses" which was adapted from his play of the same name. "Gums & Noses" was produced by T.O.M pictures and because of the very successful working relationship Craig enjoyed with this company, Craig joined the company in 2005. "Gums & Noses" won the Apollo film festival award for best feature in 2004. His play "The King of Laughter" won three Naledi awards in 2004, including best new play, best director and best supporting actor. His most recent television work was co-creating and directing two seasons of the improvised comedy series "Sorted". Craig has since finished his new screenplay "Stiff" which is being developed by T.O.M Pictures.
