Howard Barker in conversation with David Ian Rabey (2/2)

10th May 2010



The legendary playwright and Artistic Director of the Wrestling School talks to Professor David Ian Rabey (University of Aberystwyth), about tragedy, working with actors, and the ethics of directing. Plus Q&A. Part of the Howard Barker at the Segal Centre Day, a celebration of his work. Recorded live at the Martin E Segal Theater Center at CUNY Graduate Center, New York.

I love working with actors, and it alters you in some way. But because writers work in solitude it can be difficult to enter a room with 15 people and start organising them.
