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.
Panel also includes: Harry Josephine Giles (Drone) and Dael Orlandersmith (Until the Flood).
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.
