I’ve been writing stageplays for over 10 years and have recently ventured into the “devised play”, so I was intrigued and excited to be working on this project. I’m also doing my MA in Playwriting at the momment, so it would be a great experience that I could take into that course as well. So it was great to have a commission that helps to validate my role as a writer and a director.
