Helena Drysdale & Nicola Baldwin

Weaving

Helena Drysdale explores a personal connection between travel writing and history, and Nicola Baldwin explains why playwrights should roll their own theatre companies. Helena Drysdale explains how a family connection and a difficult recovery from cancer led her to Greece and to considerations of imperialism in travel writing. Nicola Baldwin notices the absence of playwrights taking up Artistic Director roles in theatres, and explores the potential advantages of a “roll-your-own” theatre company.
