The playwright talks to Aleks Sierz about the first London revival of his 1991 classic, The Pitchfork Disney (currently at the Arcola) and about his new play, Shivered (about to open at the Southwark Playhouse). Substantial extract. Recorded: 12 January 2012.

The Pitchfork Disney started while I was a student at St Martin’s College of Art: part of the course was performance art, and I wrote some long monologues for that.
