Personal Quote:

My first brush with Brecht [Bertolt Brecht] was a production of The Caucasian Chalk Circle which is still fondly remembered by people who saw it. I just loved it as there was something anarchic about him as Brecht is a slippery thing. He will not give you any easy answers, and no-one stands out as either a paragon of virtue or someone you'd like to be. See more »

Also a successful novelist.
