The playwright talks to Aleks Sierz about her new Royal Court play, The Village Bike, which explores the sex lives of a couple who have just moved to the countryside, and about Eigengrau, which was at the Bush Theatre in 2010. Recorded at the Royal Court, 20 July 2011.

I googled this idea that men go off sex during their partner’s pregnancy and found plenty of evidence that women had had exactly this experience.
