The playwright discusses her new play, Billy the Girl (Soho Theatre), which was commissioned by the Clean Break Theatre Company, with Carole Woddis. She talks about the workshop process and about Clean Break’s work in women’s prisons, and the differences between stage and radio plays. Recorded at the Soho, 31 October 2013.

My favourite way of beginning a piece of work in the writing process is something someone has said to me – a line of dialogue that just smells right.
