Published 9 December 2016

Today the Royal Court Theatre release the first in a 12 part series of podcasts with leading playwrights.

Throughout the series Royal Court Associate Playwright Simon Stephens talks to April De Angelis, Rachel De-lahay, Tanika Gupta, David Hare, Robert Holman, Dennis Kelly, Alistair McDowall, Anthony Neilson, Joe Penhall, Lucy Prebble, Anya Reiss, Polly Stenham and Enda Walsh.

Commenting on the podcast series Simon Stephens said; “Over the past few months I have had conversations with some of the most exciting playwrights in the country. It has been a real honour. Our conversations have been rangy and lengthy and detailed and fun. I’ve asked them about their careers and their lives, their ambitions and their work. I think, collectively, they offer an extraordinary insight into how playwrights work in the UK today. I am thrilled that these conversations will be aired over the next few months.”
