It was an emotional farewell to Manchester, where I’d re-opened Contact, a theatre that put young people and emerging artists at the core of everything it did, some years before, and where my friendships and artistic partnerships ran pretty deep.

Opportunities,  as I know from experience, are few and far between and commissions rarely come to unknown playwrights. There is little chance for written work to be…
