Write to Play

Sold out

Write to Play present an evening with Helen Edmundson

 

This is a unique opportunity to hear Helen in conversation with Giles Croft (Artistic Director of Nottingham Playhouse) about her life and work, listen to a reading from one of her plays, and take part in a Q&A.

Helen is a British playwright whose first play Flying was produced at the National Theatre Studio in 1990. Since then, her work for the theatre has included: The Clearing, first performed at the Bush Theatre (Time Out Award & John Whiting Award); Mother Teresa is Dead (Royal Court Theatre); and four stage adaptations for Shared Experience Theatre – Anna Karenina, The Mill on the Floss, War and Peace, and Gone to Earth. Her adaptation of Coram Boy premiered at the National Theatre in November 2005 and was revived a year later (Time Out Award). Helen has also written two short films for television and adaptations for BBC Radio 4.

Write to Play… evenings are brought to you by In The Same Boat. Putting writers and directors in your reach.
