INTERVIEW: PHILIP RIDLEY
The polymath playwright bewitches Aleks Sierz with his description of his amazing new play, Feathers in the Snow (the last show to be staged at the Southwark Playhouse’s current location), and explains the story behind the piece’s creation. Recorded at the Southwark Playhouse, 19 December 2012.
I was very conscious of the fairytale aspect of the story; I’ve been obsessed with fairy tales — and the ways they are told — for most of my life.
