INTERVIEW: CAROLINE BIRD
Continuing TheatreVOICE’s examination of the Lyric Hammersmith’s Secret Theatre, poet and playwright Caroline Bird tells Matt Trueman about her play Chamber Piece, which is the third show of the season. A deranged, Ortonesque farce around an imagined system of capital punishment in a futuristic capitalist state, Chamber Piece has since been shortlisted for the Susan Smith Blackburn prize. Recorded at the Lyric Hammersmith, 13 February 2014.
The whole play is about people trying to shirk responsibility.
