Award-winning playwright Joe Penhall discusses Haunted Child

13th January 2012



The playwright talks to Aleks Sierz about his latest Royal Court play, Haunted Child, which is about a man who suddenly walks out on his wife and child and then returns as a cult member, and about his upcoming play, Birthday, which will be at the same venue in June. Recorded at the Royal Court, 12 January 2012.

The clever people sussed that there is more than one haunted child in the play, and the stupid people just thought: where’s the ghost of Christmas past?
