State of Play: Playwrights and playwriting in New Zealand today
Yes, it's true, New Zealand does have twenty living playwrights whose work has helped to create the multi-faceted gem that is New Zealand Theatre. --Theatreview
Playwrights Michelanne Forster (above left) and Vivienne Plumb (above right) discuss their recently-published book Twenty New Zealand Playwrights, which offers compelling insights into some of New Zealand’s best-loved playwrights.
