WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Rehearsing with Anthony Neilson and a company of writers for one week, each writer will create a thirty minute devised piece. The results will be presented in the Jerwood Theatre Upstairs over three nights. "I haven't had many theatrical epiphanies but I did have one watching Penetrator at the Old Red Lion ten years ago in 2003. Despite having studied drama at school and university, seeing Penetrator was the first time that I genuinely realised that you could make drama about everyday life and everyday people (it's very different to technically know something and viscerally experience it). It led me to Anthony Neilson's Plays 1 and I've been a fan of his ever since."
