18th January 2012



The playwright and writer of the film The Iron Lady talks to Aleks Sierz about Lovesong, her latest collaboration with Scott Graham and Steven Hoggett of Frantic Assembly, currently at the Lyric Hammersmith as part of a nationwide tour. Recorded at the Lyric Hammersmith, 17 January 2012.

I wanted to write a play about which a 16-year-old would say, “God, I want to live my life to the full because one day I will be old”, but which also recognised older people as living sexual beings.
