15 September, at 6.00, I’ll be interviewing J T Rogers about his play
Blood and Gifts, a docudrama about the American involvement in
Afghanistan in the 1980s.
Weirdly, I’ll be interviewing him on the set of Earthquakes in London. Who knows how that will work out but I’m sure it’ll be fine.
I plan to ask about political theatre, the value of documentary, the personal obsessions that lie within it, the differences between British and American politics and theatre culture and the question of research. Should be very interesting - and I’m greatly looking forward to meeting the man.
