“Improvising, acting and collaborating with others really taught me to write from an actor’s perspective.”
Moira Buffini explores how she works with the past to write about the present, with particular reference to her World War II play Gabriel, which emerged out of a desire to write about the lives of women during the war.
The dramatist, director and actor talks about her life and career in intimate detail and explains why the elemental plays - from the Greeks to Beckett - have been such a great influence and inspiration for her own work.
