The playwright talks to Aleks Sierz about his new book, How Plays Work (Nick Hern), which discusses the role of the audience and the importance of genre, as well as examining the elements that make up a piece of written theatre. Plus: the insider view of the All Together Now? British Theatre after Multiculturalism conference at Warwick University.

Knowledge should never be damaging. The book is like a toolkit – and how you use the tools is up to you.
