An evening with David Edgar and Bryony Lavery

Thursday 29 April, 7-9pm at Derby Theatre Studio

To launch the revival of this famous studio venue (formerly Derby Playhouse) the Theatre Arts department at Derby, in partnership with the Writers' Guild and in association with Theatre Writing Partnership, present Getting it Good, Getting it Right – an evening with David Edgar and Bryony Lavery.

At a time of economic recession, the theatre seems to be thriving. And with the recent British Theatre Consortium survey revealing just how widely newly commissioned writing figures in this success, the challenge of what the playwright can bring to the contemporary stage has never been more relevant.

From their different personal perspectives, these two accomplished playwrights will talk about how they approach this challenge (both creatively and structurally) including discussion of David Edgar’s new publication ‘How Plays Work’ and Bryony Lavery’s latest collaboration with Frantic Assembly Theatre Co.

Tickets: £5, £2.50 concessions. FREE for Guild members.
