New writing special: Steven Atkinson and the HighTide Festival

29th August 2012



The artistic director of the HighTide Festival in Halesworth, Suffolk, talks to Aleks Sierz about this annual new writing event, his mission of finding and developing new talent, and about two plays in particular: Ella Hickson’s Boys (which was also seen at the Soho) and Vickie Donoghue’s Mudlarks (which is coming to the Bush). Recorded at HighTide offices, 29 August 2012.

The inspiration behind HighTide was simply to create a platform to produce writers who we felt were extraordinary.
