“I like playwriting particularly because it’s like playing three-dimensional chess: it’s fiendishly difficult but in the most enjoyable way.”
Bryony Lavery provides insight into her life and career as a writer, explaining how her passion for playwriting emerged out of teaching, and details the collaborative process of working with Frantic Assembly to create Stockholm and Beautiful Burnout, exploring her fascination with the tension between the text and physicality on stage.
Lavery also discusses her approach writing, creating games to produce dialogues, emotions and characters, and details how she came to work with Sound and Fury on Kursk, a play inspired by the sinking of Russian submarine K-141 Kursk, as well as adapt Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island for the National Theatre in 2014.
