Enda Walsh interview

In The Guardian, Maddy Costa talks to Enda Walsh abouthis play, The Walworth Farce, which opens at the National Theatre next week.
For Dublin-born Walsh, avoiding naturalism is written into his "Irish playwright DNA". "I don't like seeing everyday life on stage: it's boring. I like my plays to exist in an abstract, expressionistic world: the audience has to learn its rules, and then connect with these characters who are, on the surface, dreadful monsters." If he feels a strong connection with his grotesque characters, it's partly because they are reflections of himself.
