Delve deeper into what stimulates the artists behind this year’s Edinburgh festival with these fun, engaging discussions. Each lively session is chaired by a leading playwright or theatre-maker. Every Picture Tells a Story: what are the challenges of making theatre that doesn’t always begin with a traditional play – or even written text? Chaired by Lynda Radley. Gentlemen, I Just Don’t Belong Here: with movements such as Everyday Sexism Project, #MeToo and recent events like No Grey Areas, is the power balance in theatre beginning to shift, and representation becoming more inclusive? Chaired by Sarah Rose Graber.
