Is it time to get rid of new writing?

Over the last 20 years British Theatre has witnessed a phenomenal growth in New Writing. But has New Writing become as much a curse as a blessing. In particular is there a harmful and false division between ‘New Work’ and ‘New Writing’? Is there too much development and not enough productions? Is there a ‘New Writing’ sort of play and is it killing off other kinds of writing? Come discuss these and other matters in a lively debate with:

Suzanne Bell
 New Writing Associate, Manchester Royal Exchange

David Eldridge

Fin Kennedy

Kaite O’Reilly

Dawn Walton
 Artistic Director, Eclipse Theatre
