The playwright talks to Carole Woddis about his three current productions: his new play, Anne Boleyn (Shakespeare’s Globe), his adaptation of Robert Tressell’s The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists (Liverpool/Chichester) and his version of Georg Buchner’s Danton’s Death (National). Recorded at Shakespeare’s Globe.

Sartre said that some writers write for God, some writers write for themselves and some writers write for others – I’m a writer who writes for other people.
