Join playwright Alan Ayckbourn in conversation with Peter Kemp

Alan Ayckbourn has been a playwright for 58 years, and to date has written 80 plays, including Relatively Speaking, How the Other Half Loves, Absurd Person Singular and The Norman Conquests. In 1997 he was knighted for services to theatre, and he has won numerous awards. With Peter Kemp, Chief Fiction Reviewer for The Sunday Times, he explores the way his work combines comedy with underlying seriousness, and the way he uses humour to treat themes such as emotional inhibition, isolation, failures of communication and fraughtness within families. We also hear about influences on his writing, his working routines and his on-going fascination with technical experimentation.
