“The thing about plays is that they’re transparent. We can usually, at some level, see right through them and into the theatre-maker’s heart.”
Dennis Kelly talks in-depth about his life as a writer for both stage and screen, discussing his education, career development and approach to writing with reference to works such as DNA, Girls and Boys and the musical adaptation of Matilda.
Kelly provides insight into his artistic choices, exploring the role of violence and character relationships in his plays, and emphasises the importance of being an honest writer - staying true to who you are and not who you think you should be.
