… or This Is What They Don’t Want You To Know There will be no stories about this. There’ll be no exposes. Because it doesn’t fit the narrative. What will be written about is the poor playwrights, the bad ol’ play development system, the diversity issue, the funding issue, the oh please someone do my [...]

A Master

In Your Living Room

25.05.2011

Why all the punk postings lately? Well, I’ve been looking at the next few months and what Working Group and myself are looking to accomplish and we’re looking to invade your home.
