To introduce the week, David Edgar will outline the story of new writing in postwar British theatre and the growth of the anti-writer trend since the 1990s. He will present the case for the individual playwright (vigorously) but also discuss whether the primacy of the playwright is outdated and what playwrights can learn and have learnt from alternative playmaking methods.
