Mark Ravenhill - Over There

In The Guardian, Philip Oltermann talks to Guild Member Mark Ravenhill about his new play, Over There.
Ravenhill's play was originally co-commissioned by the Royal Court in London and the Schaub├╝hne theatre in Berlin, and was meant to be about something closer to home. "They thought I would write something about the fall of Thatcherism, the fall of Blairism, blah blah blah," Ravenhill says. "But then I thought, if you talk about collapsing ideologies, the German situation is so much starker. The changes in German history over the last 100 years are so massive; English history doesn't really have anything to compare."
Over There is at The Royal Court Theatre in London until 21 March.
