We are delighted to announce that the celebrated playwright David Edgar will be our Visiting Professor in Drama Studies. In a week of events, he will explore the causes and consequences of the anti-writer trend. Is it happening? Do the charges against the playwright stack up? Can playwrights work effectively in a collective framework? What effect is the controversy having on training, on the profession of playwright, on criticism and the theatre as a whole?
