If all the world’s a stage, we’re the programme notes. The National Theatre Podcast explores how theatre connects to the big issues of our time: sex, death, politics, and everything in between. We take you behind the scenes to investigate the artists and the ideas behind some of today’s most interesting productions, and go out into the world to find theatre at play in our everyday lives. It’s a show about theatre, without the drama.
 
In this collection, leading playwrights explain some of the key elements of a well-written play, and discuss how they approach them in their own work. Simon Stephens, David Hare, Katori Hall, Matt Charman, Nell Leyshon, James Graham, Alia Bano, Richard Bean, Anders Lustgarten and Roy Williams talk about writing dialogue, creating characters, structuring a narrative and more. They also offer some top tips for first time writers, and talk about their own writing methods.
 
En langue anishnabemowin, Okinum signifie «barrage».

The coronavirus infects the human body, but what illnesses in our body politic make us more vulnerable to it? Economic inequality? Environmental devastation? Labor precarity? Alienation?
