Rage and Reason

Women playwrights speak about their art and the theatre in this collection of interviews about a key decade of British drama. Twenty leading contemporary dramatists discuss their work from the perspective of being both writers and women. Each talks about the state of the theatre now, the craft of playwrighting and the pressures of working within a male dominated environment.

“What I think is so exciting about the response to a number of the plays written by women in the last ten years is that they are popular with audiences – because they’ve got this quality, this energy and this culture that hasn’t been seen much on stage before: a humour, sexiness and wit that’s been missing.”

Charlotte Keatley

Shraddha
by Natasha Langridge

Winner of 2010 Meyer-Whitworth Award

The 2012 Olympics spells eviction for the generations of Romany Gypsies living in East London. 17 year old Pearl Penfold is one of them. As the bulldozers close in, Pearl falls in love with Joe, a boy from the local estate. Can Joe prove himself to Pearl and her family before they are gone forever?

Press Comment

“It’s thrilling to encounter a playwright who first of all takes the time thoroughly to research an unseen corner of British culture, and then enters so passionately and creatively into the challenges of bringing that story to the stage. Shraddha displays some breath-taking writing and a vivid theatrical imagination; it’s the kind of play that makes you hungry to know what the writer will produce next.”

Edward Kemp, Meyer-Whitworth Award judge
