INTERVIEW: DENNIS KELLY AND MARIA ABERG
The playwright and director of The Gods Weep, a Royal Shakespeare Company production at the Hampstead Theatre, starring Jeremy Irons, talk to Aleks Sierz about this epic play, which depicts the descent into an apocalyptic nightmare of Colm, its turbo-charged capitalist protagonist. Recorded at the RSC.
I wanted the play to be messy and crazy – I didn’t want it to be too clean and too neat. Which is good, because it isn’t!
