(Stephens’s article ran in the Guardian, 6/25.)
The most memorable experience I've had watching one of my own plays wasn't at the National Theatre or in Manchester's Royal Exchange. It wasn't at the Traverse in Edinburgh or London's Royal Court or at the Kammerspiele Vienna, or the Deutsches Theater Berlin. It was in the converted gallows of Wandsworth jail, six years ago, watching my play Country Music, which is currently being revived and toured to prisons by West Yorkshire Playhouse.
