What happens when we pair up two theatre artists from different backgrounds to co-host a discussion about what makes great theatre in 2019?

Douglas Maxwell (Decky Does a Bronco, Charlie Sonata, The Whip Hand) is a self-proclaimed 'old-school' playwright and Jenny Lindsay (Flint and Pitch, This Script) is a spoken word poet, performer, writer and promoter. Douglas and Jenny are joined by a panel of writers and theatre-makers, each creating work in remarkable ways, to discuss inspirations, career paths, approaches to craft and their shows at this year’s festival.

Part of the Made in Scotland 2019 showcase.

Playwrights’ Studio’s Bookshop will ‘pop up’ again in the Traverse Bar from Mon 5 to Sun 25 Aug. The bookshop stocks over 500 titles and attracts some 2,500 visits over the festival.
