“Theatre can be poetry… that’s one of its strengths, its visual and verbal poetry.”
Playwright and screenwriter Helen Edmundson provides insight into her process for adapting Leo Tolstoy’s War and Peace and George Eliot’s The Mill on the Floss for Shared Experience, explaining how the characters, narrative and themes can be translated on stage for modern audiences.
Edmundson also discusses her approach to writing, exploring her interest in creating plays concerned with women’s roles and voices, and speaks about the heightened poetic form that is often associated with her work, detailing the effort it takes to craft an idea into a rhythmic structure.
