“Making Magic Real” - David Edgar in Cornwall

Playwright David Edgar will be at Hall for Cornwall on Thursday October 9th.

This is a great opportunity to meet multi-award winning playwright David Edgar.

David will discuss the writer’s life, and will also be talking about the perceived problems of being based so far away from London. But is geography a state of mind? Or, with the advent of the Internet, do writers now have the greatest freedom to live wherever they choose – including Cornwall?

Do you really need an agent? How important is it to become a member of the Writers’ Guild of Great Britain? And how does all this tie in with the current state of theatre?

Come along for an uplifting talk, a lively debate, wine and nibbles, and a chat afterwards with other writers and people interested in writers and writing.

David is perhaps best known for his adaptation of Nicholas Nickleby for the RSC, he has also written for radio, television, and film, as well as founding the University of Birmingham's MA in Playwriting Studies. He is President of the Writers’ Guild of Great Britain.

Thursday 9th October 7:30pm Assembly Room, Hall for Cornwall Tickets are free, so booking is advised. HfC Box Office 01872 262466

Presented by Writers’ Guild of Great Britain and supported by Hall for Cornwall, Mundic Nation and Cornwall Media Focus.
