Advice for playwrights | Rebecca Lenkiewicz

“Write from the heart. Write about what moves you. It has to be about truth, really. Don’t try to be clever.”

Playwright of The Invisible, Rebecca Lenkiewicz, issued the above advice in an interview with The Guardian newspaper in 2008. The Guardian reports that she added, ‘with characteristic sweetness, to her imagined audience’: “You are probably clever anyway.”

The Invisible, by Rebecca Lenkiewicz, played at the Bush Theatre 3 July – 15 August.
