Last weekend, I met with Alison Farina, on the set of her latest play, ‘Fertility Objects’ and we talked about writing methods and how important it is for a playwright to see your work onstage; ‘As an actor, I think that I’m really aware of what will work on a stage and what won’t.’

We also talked about setting up your own company or finding someone who will produce your work; ‘If you’re a writer you need to see your work onstage… a script depends on the actors, and the actors depend on the director, and the director depends on the production company. It’s a completely symbiotic genre – which is beautiful and that’s why I love it so much.’
