Following on from Memoirs of a Tree, performed at last year’s InTRANSIT festival, Natasha Langridge returns in 2016 with another immersive monologue inspired by local life. In Memory of Leaves describes Natasha’s experience living in a block of flats on the Portobello Road council estate, which is being torn down by developers, and how all of her surroundings and green spaces are rapidly changing.

I’m currently working on a play about 18th Century female Pyrates for The National Theatre Studio in London. My main focus is Ann Bonny, an Irish pyrate, born around 1700 who operated in the Carribbean and was one of only several noted women in the business of piracy.

She is, without doubt, my pyrate queen!

Rage and Reason: Women Playwrights on Playwriting by Heidi Stephenson and Natasha Langridge was originally published by Methuen Books in 1997 and is now available in digital format.

Synopsis:
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.
